Mugdha Shah is a graphic designer. Way back in 1997, she was Tulika's first student intern from N I D, Ahmedabad.
The four folk tales she illustrated as part of her diploma project, using four different artistic traditions in Hiss, Don’t Bite! (Kalighat paintings), Eyes on the Peacock’s Tail (Phad paintings), Magic Vessels (clay sculptures from Tamilnadu) and A Curly Tale (Madhubani paintings), still fly off the shelves.
Common themes that run through her work have to do with colour, nature, the earth and growing things. She also teaches yoga, enjoys being outdoors and walking barefoot.
