Jupi was born in India, in the state call Assam and began her paper cutting journey during her short time stay in Beijing, China in the year 1993. Jupi moved to US in 1994. Being a self taught artist, Jupi has been working on papercutting since 1994. Throughout the year she has been exhibiting her work in many well known galleries and participating at highly juried shows such as Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington DC, Philadelphia Museum Craft Show etc. etc. She has received many awards and recognitions throughout the years, along with the invitation to the White House in 2002.

To rejuvenate the ancient tradition of paper cutting, Jupi adds elements from Chinese, Japanese, German and Swiss traditions to her own style. Her style of papercutting is very unique and different from the traditional cuttings. One must see her original artwork, in order to understand what Jupi creates.

Jupi is a full time artist and works from her own studio near the Philadelphia area.
