On the account of muscular dystrophy, Sunitha’s body gradually lost its strength, and in the course of time, she lost the use of her hands and was unable to walk. Born on the 7th of January 1983 in Kannur, Kerala, Sunitha was blessed to have a mentor like Mouth painter Ganesh Kumar (long-time scholarship holder with MFPA),
who encouraged the young artist to paint with her mouth. She enjoyed it very much and rapidly made considerable progress. Sunitha is a member of the MFPA since 2004 and has made exquisite paintings of Gods and Goddesses of India.
