Burman was born in Paris and brought up in France. She initially trained as an architect, but found the profession too restrictive and turned her hand to painting. She works mainly in pen and ink, and watercolor. This spontaneous media encourages her to create series of works, because overworking or reworking each painting with new ideas is difficult. She has had exhibitions of her work in India, France, and the UK.
She is the youngest member of an extended family of artists: her father, Sakti Burman (from Kolkata) and French mother Maite Delteil, are both prominent artists, as are her cousin, Jayasri Burman and Jayasri's husband, Paresh Maity.
