A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hi, This is Rachna.

I'm a calligrapher and an artist based in Mumbai, specialising in Modern Calligraphy, Devanagari, Hand Lettering and Watercolour for weddings, special occasions, corporate events, large scale murals and personal commissions. I love teaching and so I love putting on my teaching hat once in awhile.


I have worked in few of the best advertising agencies in Mumbai for 6 years and in December 2016, I quit my day job and started doing something that I love. It all started with wanting to feel the sheer joy of using my hands to create some beautiful art. I had started teaching myself calligraphy 4 years ago and today I offer calligraphy services and workshops all around the country. My work is a melange beautiful calligraphy and colourful artworks, it defines me.

I have studied Devanagari in Achut Palav's school of calligraphy and also attended an intensive workshop for Copperplate and Spencerian Script under the mentorship of the only Master Penwoman - Barbara Calzolari from Itlay. 

For me, this journey from advertising to being an artist was tough, and I finally know where I belong. The first step is always the toughest. Have courage and follow your heart. It always knows what you want.
