ABOUT MONA PANDE
Mona Pande was born in India surrounded by family who immersed her in the practice of traditional Indian folk arts, specifically Madhubani, Rajesthsni Art, Pichwai Art, Rangoli Art, and Warli Art. She remembers vividly seeing her grandmother and aunts painting and being very attached to these various art forms.
She traveled continually throughout India with her family and learned by watching various art forms performed by both skilled artists and everyday people in many different villages. Mona considers herself self-taught, and in the course of her studies, she has returned frequently to villages in India to talk and train with traditional artists and practitioners.
