Sabina is an Indian-American illustrator, animator, writer, and educator. She uses her art forms to make complex activist ideas and research accessible, and to fuse magical storylines with real-world settings. She has a Bachelor's in Fine Arts  in illustration from Rhode Island School of Design, has held co-creation workshops locally and internationally, and aims to use her art as a platform for the voices and narratives of marginalized communities.


In the past, she has created education materials for nonprofits and simplified complex research and activist ideas into accessible animated videos. She has also worked in collaboration with an activist group in Ranchi, India, through a Brown University Social Innovation Fellowship, to prototype ways nonfiction illustration could be used as a tool for communication and empowerment of marginalized communities. She has worked as a freelance animator and illustrator in San Francisco, a Teaching Artist at Reel Oakland and Performing Arts Workshop, and an artist in residence at The Convent Arts Collective. She is a freelance animator and illustrator,  and the lead animator for documentaries such as Marlene Mcurtis’ “Wednesdays in Mississippi,” Sarah Megyesey’s “In a Dry Land,” Teo Octavia's "Danny's Story", and Samantha Steele's "Mother Tongue." She has worked on documentaries with topics ranging from the 1960's civil rights movements, to the refugee fight against the unjust criminal justice system, to the relationship of diasporic identities with language.


She has just completed a Fulbright research scholarship in Istanbul, Turkey, co-creating animations with Syrian refugee youth, in the medium of traditional Turkish shadow puppets.
