Lakshmy Menon Chatterjee is a well-traveled poetess and an artist, who experienced an epiphany in January 2014, which prompted her to resume writing and painting after a hiatus of nine years. She likes to write poetry that is founded in realism or pseudo-realism, and calls it ‘poetry with a purpose.’
Her childhood was spent in Africa, specifically, Liberia and Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo). Although she has a full-time job, she uses her free time to write poems and create art. Originally from Kerala, she currently lives in Chennai with her husband and daughter.
