This is the personal website of saheli khastagir. This is where she will compile all her paintings, drawings, writings, projects, link to other projects and publications and will be the one-stop place linking to every other place she is at.

Open for collaborations

As artist, illustrator, writer and researcher, I am constantly looking for new opportunities to collaborate with other creative and socially conscious individuals. If you have something in mind, don't hesitate to contact me. 🙂

Open for commissions

I have developed portraits, paintings and illustrations for private individuals and written articles on request (on different topics). I am honest about my capacities and rates and try to accommodate to the needs and budget of the client. If my style seems like something you need email me, and we can work something out.
