Meenal Patel is an illustrator, children’s book author, and designer whose work celebrates everyday joys, the moments that connect us, and the strength of community. She’s the author and illustrator of Priya Dreams of Marigolds & Masala, which received the South Asia Book Award. Her latest children’s book project is illustrating In This Family written by Shelly Anand, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2024. Meenal has also had the pleasure of collaborating with clients such as the Asian Art Museum, Cloud9 Fabrics, Yelp, Blue Q, and Compendium.

Meenal loves to mentally collect textures from nature, which she transform into patterns throughout her art. Her background in graphic design instilled an attention to detail, an affinity for unexpected color combinations, and a love of the storytelling power of patterns. She hopes the experiences that she infuses in her art will result in connection, belonging, and delight for someone else.

When she’s not in the studio, she loves painting with her nieces, reading cookbooks, and baking birthday cakes. Now back home in Minnesota after years spent in California, she enjoys hiking with my husband and sweet dog. She never says no to ice cream.
