Sabeena Karnik

Sabeena Karnik is an artist and graphic designer living in Mumbai, India.  She is internationally known for her quilled illustrations and typography.  She has mastered the art of quilling, rolling paper into coils, pinching them into shapes and gluing them to create decorative designs.  On Verve Magazine she say this about her art:  

“I am not aware of anyone else doing it as a full-time profession in India. When you think of creating with paper, it’s always considered to be for gifts. Quilling is something that you learn in a hobby class; no one really thought of taking it to the next level. I wanted to break that barrier.”

More of her work can be seen on Behance, Facebook and Instagram.  She has a small shop here on Big Cartel.
