Hi! I am Menka Desai, an Architect/ Artist and the face behind Mantis Shrimp Monocles. I currently live in Mumbai, India with my amazing husband David after returning back from New York, where we stayed for three years!


New York is the place where I really learned about alcohol inks and it opened up a whole new avenue for me as an Artist. I have been painting since the time I remember but recently have I started selling them and for the first time on such a big and competitive platform.


I love a good composition on everything - whether on paper, in spaces or in imagination. I look forward to this exciting journey and hope you all would love my artwork and it will bring as much joy to you as it brings to me while creating them.
