Hi! I am Sujanitha
and I am an illustrator, urban sketcher, and a surface pattern designer based in San Francisco, Bay Area, CA by way of New York and Mumbai with roots in Chennai, India. I have been a creative since my childhood, soaking my hands in paint, cutting paper for crafts, and dressing up for play and dance recitals. Couple decades of detour later, I have retraced my steps in pursuit of creative happiness. Voila! The Happy Wala Place was born.
The Happy Wala (Hindi for “kind of”) Place is state of mindset, state of happy mindset. My creative streak has served me well over years to keep me calm, be mindful, be present, and yes, be happy!
Thanks to some generous and supportive friends, I have conducted “urban sketching” and “watercolor art therapy” workshops in the past and even had my artwork licensed onto company thank you cards. To me art uplift spirits, bring a smile to the face, and sparks joy. Imagine a world where all of us are joyous? How cool would that be?
Curious yet? What are you waiting for? Come along for the ride and feel inspired to travel to “THE HAPPY WALA PLACE.”
