She has also received awards like the Nari Shakti Award from the Gujarat government, recognition from the Lalit Kala Academy, and various other regional and national-level awards in recognition of her craft.

Going beyond traditional canvases, she has also beautified dozens of public spaces and projects such as bridges, school walls, anganwadis, traffic circles and railway underpasses in Surat, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Navsari and Indore.

“I believe art connects us to the world and each other. Through my paintings and artwork, I aim to convey the essence of life and emotion. Painting is not only my hobby but a part of my existence. I feel the liveliest when I capture human emotions on the canvas,” says Mital.
