Book Description

Following My Paint Brush is the story of Dulari Devi, a domestic helper who went on to become an artist in the Mithila style of folk painting from Bihar, eastern Indian. Dulari is from a community of fisher folk, used to a life of hard and relentless labor.
How she discovered creativity while working as a cleaning woman in an artist’s house is a moving story. She learned by doing, and very soon came to adapt artistic rules and conventions to her own expressive needs. Following My Paint Brush narrates Dulari’s momentous journey, from a worker who knew no rest to an artist who is willing to go where her imagination leads her.
