Suman Kaur

Suman Kaur was born in Leeds. After Sixth form she went onto study Prosthetics and Orthotics and worked in the profession for several years rehabilitating amputees. During this time she continued to draw and then in 2016 realised that she couldn't keep her passion a hobby any longer. Suman went on to study at the Leeds College of Art which has now taken university status, within the first month of study she was also filming in the BBC Big Painting Challenge, a programme looking for the UK's best Amateur Artist. Suman 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 Connolly's 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".
