Suman Kaur

2019 QEST Scholar - Painting
West Yorkshire

After starting her career in Prosthetics and Orthotics, Suman took the leap to concentrate on her art and she won the best amateur artist in the BBC Big Painting Challenge 2017. Since then she has been improving her practice and building on her skills. As a British Sikh, Suman is keen to establish herself as a professional painter and to document and reflect on Sikh history in her work.

Suman’s QEST Scholarship is supporting her training at Sarum Studios where she is studying cast drawing, figure drawing and portraiture using the sight-size method.
