Sumi’s work combines different techniques to explore how humans navigate manmade built environments. There are strong architectural and cartographic elements to her work, where she draws upon her own early nomadic travels.
Sumi is a multidisciplinary artist, academic and curator, who makes interactive print installations using thermochromic and electro conductive inks, which mutate in colour and generate sound, exploiting her background as a doctor and scientist. Her work has won multiple awards and prizes and is in many public and private collections. She has held international artist residencies and solo shows all over the world.
Sumi is a senior fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers; fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen; member of the Society Of Graphic Fine Arts, & 62Group Textile Artists & Prism Print International. She regularly exhibits at Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions and The London Original Print Fair.
