Tanvi Bhat (Illustrator)
Tanvi Bhat is a children's book illustrator and author who has created books for publishers like Pratham Books, Duckbill and Tulika Books, to name a few. She likes working with watercolours and gouache when making pictures, and scribbling on scraps of paper that she's constantly losing when she writes.

'This is the story of how my grandmother became a famous artist. It happened somewhere between my seventh and eighth birthdays, so she was really old and also a grandmother, and I didn't know she was an artist. And, of course, she was not famous. And then she was both, all at once.'
For Nini, Minima is just her normal everyday grandmother. So when Minima suddenly shows an interest in doing something new, Nini is not sure that she likes it. After all, a grandmother's first job is being a grandmother, isn't it?

Yet another story of courage and taking ownership of oneself in the larger setting to assert one's desire, My Grandmother's Masterpiece, like Ritu Weds Chandni, also deals with a sensitive issue without watering anything down to suit the needs of children.Unbelievable that this is a debut book by the author. The bond between Nini and her Minima has been portrayed so well. The book drives home the message beautifully that there is no age limit for learning and grandparents, for that matter everyone, have a life of their own.I love how even subtle stereotypes are smashed in this beautiful story - the mother is shown having a career, a daughter-in-law is shown supporting her mother-in-law's secret desire and even encouraging it in many aspects and so many more.
