Art Experience :
Her interest in patachitra art grew from observing her father and uncle. Their works inspired her to become an artist as well to lend a supportive hand fighting against Poverty.
Monimala finds the art of patachitra fascinating and enchanting –She most enjoys its stories, explaining Indian mythology through this art form. She states It is magical and she’s fortunate to have inherited the talent from her father.
She worked hard to learn this art some days going without food and working long hours. Most of the time she couldn’t buy paper and used discarded paper scraps for practicing on them.
She has two children, and her dream is to own her own house for them all to live in together.
