Charcoal Art | Portraits
I paint for creative satisfaction more by instinct than technique. I work predominantly in charcoal with a touch of pastel color where necessary. I find the medium of charcoal much like human nature: black and white with many shades of grey in between. I have held many exhibitions in India and abroad, and been commissioned by individuals for specific portraits and themes. I take orders for paintings (with a photograph for reference).

Darpan- Exhibition Bangalore 2004
Born in Assam and spent her formative years in the tea-estates of Assam, she imbibed a deep and abiding affinity towards Nature. Mini started selling her artwork as a means of augmenting her fund-raising efforts in the social-welfare sector in which field she did voluntary work for 17 years.
At times impressionistic, at times photorealistic, her work is painstakingly detailed and marvellously impactful.
She now lives and works out of Coonoor, a hill station nestled in the Nilgiri hills of Tamil Nadu in India. She is commissioned for her artwork regularly.
