Aasha Ramdeen began her creative journey on the island of Trinidad, where her upbringing was strongly influenced by a rich Caribbean culture. A culture synonymous with bright hues, bold prints and an emerging fashion industry - all of which would later serve as profound inspiration on her art. After having received her BA in Graphic Design from the Edna Manley College Of The Visual And Performing Arts in Kingston, Jamaica, and later an MFA in Illustration from the Savannah College Of Art And Design in Savannah, Georgia, she began her design career in advertising as a Graphic Designer with McCann Erickson Trinidad. She then relocated to the US where she illustrated greeting cards for The Flavia Company in Santa Barbara, CA before eventually moving to Los Angeles to pursue her love of fashion as a Textile Designer with bebe. She currently designs prints for Manhattan Beachwear as well as illustrates full time.
Aasha is also a member of the Costume Designers Guild as a Costume Illustrator and has been the recipient of such honors as Best of Show in Applied Arts magazine. She has also gained recognition by the Advertising Association of Trinidad and Tobago (AATT) and the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles (SILA).
In 2018 Aasha embraced her passion for Illustration even further by launching her Etsy shop AashaRamdeenDesign. It was a means of not only creating more of the art she loves, but an outlet through which to connect further with those who support and admire it. Her shop offers a constant supply of new prints, as well as commissioned work.
She currently works and resides in Los Angeles, CA with her beloved dog Jack.
