Salina Jane Gani was born and brought up in London to East Indian, Guyanese parents. She has always had a passion for art and storytelling in pictures and has drawn from a very young age. As a child she loved illustrated children’s books and fairy tales, particularly the illustrations of Charles Keeping and Michael Forman and dreamed of being a book illustrator when she grew up.

Salina studied art at WSCAD, in Farnham, (now UCA) and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, specialising in printmaking. She often works in lino, wood cut and etchings to create bold fantastical pieces full of mystery, imagination, and narrative. One of Salina’s other favourite mediums remains drawing, particularly with ink, and she tends to often use black and white, creating fine details which draw the viewer in.

Salina’s influences are varied, but she still has a passion for art that tells a story and has been influenced by the work of Paula Rego and Frieda Kahlo, through to William Hogarth and Goya, and by Japanese Ukiyo-e prints such as those by Katsushika Hokusai.

Much of Salina’s work is concerned with telling stories, of life in London, her passions, hobbies and loves and through a series of commissioned works, “Let me illustrate your life and loves”, she has had the privilege to create portraits and tell the stories of others. In June 2018 Salina had the privilege to be the artist repainting Guyana at The Carib Art Exhibition. She exhibited a series of work in various medium, exploring her family background and the experience of Indians who came to Guyana as Indentured labourers.

​Salina is an Illustrator, Artist and Knitter working, creating and teaching in South Norwood, London, SE25.
