Priya lives in the United States and her family is from India. She feels the magic of the place that her family comes from through her Babi Ba’s colorful descriptions of India – from the warm smell of spices to the swish-swish sound of a rustling sari. Together, Priya and Babi Ba make their heritage live on through the traditions that they infuse into their everyday lives.

Priya Dreams of Marigolds & Masala is a celebration of the threads that connect each of us to our heritage, the power of sharing our traditions with others, and the special bond between grandparents and grandchildren.

A favorite gift for littles!

I love the messages about food, family, and tradition in Meenal’s beautifully written and illustrated children’s book. Her packaging is truly special too. Highly recommend for all the little ones in your life!

About The Process

I love working with both traditional and digital mediums. Either way, all of my art starts out with a very rough and tiny pencil sketch. From there I refine the outlines of the art at the final size until I’m happy with the underdrawing. My favorite parts of the process are playing with color and layering in all the pattern details.
