Manju is a multidisciplinary artist. She runs Kabutar Arts (formerly Kabutar Shadow Theatre Co.) and uses animated shadows, paper crafting, illustration and the expression of malleable art to create stories in all aspects of life. She aims to make theatre happen anywhere whether it be in a display case or on an open stage.

Manju has worked considerably in education in inspiring children to create their own animated stories both with shadow images and other props. She teaches a number of craft activities including glass and textiles.
