Mamta earned a degree in Architecture from the Chandigarh College of Architecture, graduating with a silver medal. In Delhi next, she painted and learnt sculpture with Rameshwar Broota, Shobha Broota and Pradip Saxena, at the Triveni Kala Sangam.
Mamta finds freedom by surrendering to the creative flow of art. She enjoys exploring the interplay of line, colour, form and texture through urban landscapes and abstract studies.
Her true inspiration is drawn from the city of Varanasi, a conglomeration of texture and colour. The juxtaposition and contrast of the urban fabric, a rich culture, a timeless way of life rooted in nature, have inspired her to paint cityscapes highlighting the ephemeral beauty and fragility of Varanasi, while evoking the intense vitality of an ancient and vibrant lifestyle.
