She lives and works in Kolkata. STATEMENT: Having lived in Calcutta for most of her life, the city and its environs have had an impact on her. The stifling atmosphere and the density of population consequently presented itself in her works and is bound to be represented in more ways than one. Her themes are often about urban people. She uses a naïve style with intricate decorative details. She escapes the reality and oppression of a congested city with the help of the vivid, vibrant colours that she uses. Purple, green and yellow faces gaze out of the canvas.
