Uma is a graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She graduated with distinction, honorable leadership mention recipient, and creative honors scholarship. 

 

She works with a range of materials like ceramics, wood working, jewelry, mixed media, and 3D modeling. 

 

Through her work, she explores the concept of repetition in various forms. By employing different materials and addressing different subjects, she delves into the emotional dimensions that repetition can evoke, such as unity, tension, frustration, and even humor. 

 

Uma recently curated her first exhibition "Open Waters: Permeating Territories" at the South Asia Institute in Chicago. She has also been a part of exhibitions in Chicago at Woman Made Gallery, Bridgeport Art Center, downtown SITE galleries and Bodies I at the International Museum of Surgical Science. 

 

She is heavily inspired by Surreal artists as it helps her study how one subject can be seen through different perspectives. These  perspectives is what helps create a slight difference every time an object was created through the repetitive process.
