Meet Our Illustrators - Sadhvi Jawa

Who is Sadhvi Jawa, you ask? If you've picked up An Elephant in My Backyard, one of our newest titles, you'd know about this lovely lady and her work of art. If you haven't, head to the Karadi Tales website and place an order for the book right away! 

Sadhvi teaches at the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology and is currently facilitating a 'textile livelihood project' in Drishya Kalika Kendra, a school for the urban poor. Besides teaching, and illustrating for books and websites, she blogs actively at

Sadhvi loves to paint. Of course she does! Paints, brushes, threads, needles, fabric are her mediums of expression. She collects children's books because they make her grin like the Cheshire Cat. She also loves to carry her newly bought books with her everywhere she goes. She strongly believes in visuals and their ability to evoke a wide range of emotions.

She feels that children’s books are also meant for adults who in the process of growing up have forgotten to be a child. We agree with you on that one, Sadhvi!
