Her theme is Folk-Art and hence her works represent mostly the folk style. It is quite typical of her that she has used oil as her medium. Her
paintings are an exquisite example of her hard work.
Her selection and treatment of colours - Red - Yellow - Blue & Green is
superb. The subjects are very simple and include Indian God and Goddesses
like Durga , Kali , Shiva etc. She has also painted Krishna and Radha
alongwith some lady figures.
Her works are a real piece of Meenakari and picture space is full of
colour - dots, lines and Motifs. It is not easy to paint so minutely in oil
but she has taken the risk and accomplished it faithfully.
Her art is simple - colours are bright and attractive - the theme remains
typical Indian Folk. Her paintings were exhibited in the following art
