Art and India are in Kumar’s genes, on her mother’s English side she comes from a line of established artists: her father’s Indian heritage she traces back to Kashmir and Afghanistan via stories of partition and lost family gold.

More recently she has had a 5 month solo show in Southbank, annual exhibitions at the Royal Geographical Society, and in 2015 gave a talk about her work; Rasa: Essence of India – in the famous Ondaatje Theatre.
