About Uma

Uma Jeyaseelan is a Jaffna born Sydney based artist with a Bachelors in Industrial Design, Masters in Environmental Management and Diploma in Building Design.


The day to day beauty in her surroundings and her

ethnic background  has turned her hobby of painting  into a passion. 


The self-taught artist says her love for Art and design started at a very young age watching her mum paint. Inspired by simple silhouette Uma's illustrations depict 'less is more'. Working mainly with watercolour and gouache Uma finds the translucency and opaqueness of these medium bold and romantic.
