Hi! I am Kusum Das, a Madhubani painting artist. I was born on 23 March 1960 in Bahera town of Darbhanga district of Bihar. I have studied till 11th standard.
From an early age, I was very interested in drawing and painting. I learned Madhubani painting from my mother-in-law late Jagdamba Devi. She was awarded the Padma Shri Award by the Government of India in 1975.
I make paintings on handmade paper using natural colors, brushes and nib pens.
My expertise is in making Bharni and Kachni style of Madhubani painting.
My family has been engaged in making Madhubani paintings for the last seven generations and I too have over 40 years of experience in this field.
I have been honored with various awards in the field of Madhubani art such as the State Award from the Government of Delhi in the year 2002-2003 and the National Award from the Government of India in the year 2008.
I have trained many students through government and non-government organizations.
I want to train more students who are interested in learning the art of making Madhubani painting. Also, I want to win the Shilp Guru Award.
