Suman Kaur was born in Leeds. After Sixth form I went onto study Prosthetics and Orthotics and worked in the profession for several years rehabilitating amputees. During this time I continued to draw and then in 2016 realised that I couldn't keep my passion a hobby any longer. I went onto study at the Leeds College of Art which has now taken university status, within the first month of study I was also filming in the BBC Big Painting Challenge, a programme looking for the UKs best amateur Artist. I went onto to win the programme which was broadcast in 2017.
In the past I have exhibited in the Affordable art fair, Morphets auction house Harrogate and this year the Mall Galleries as part of the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition Exhibition, the show is a UK touring exhibit. I have also exhibited in the Peoples Palace Glasgow for Billy Connollys lifetime Exhibition, the portrait later sold to Brendan Coyle.
I am currently still working on my artistic voice but I have a keen interest in portraiture, people have commented that the work has a small street art vibe and real humanity to it, I am keen to develop further under the guidance of professionals in the field.
