Women in India have always thrived in creative fields since the days of Amrita Sher-Gil and Homai Vyarawalla. And you will agree with us when we say that there is no better time to put them in the spotlight than now. Contemporary India is more than ready for art that is new, fresh and different and these women are right there in the forefront. We couldn't stop admiring the fabulous, detailed and futuristic work that they are putting out and we can't wait to tell you all about them. In this article we shift focus from other rigmaroles of the world, to Indian woman illustrators (not in any particular order) who are making a name for themselves in the national and international art circuit.

Swamy by regular standards, was a late entrant to the world of arts.

Now she creates caricature art, ornate illustrations, bottle art and designs under her pseudonym Kaleidostrokes. Her doodles are striking and have a fresh approach to the age old art form.
