“For me art is an expression of my ideas and feelings to my viewers in simple language that I can’t do in words.”   

Smitha George is a self-taught artist with a love for wildlife and nature. Majority of her childhood was spent traveling which helped her understand different cultures. After majoring in finance and having worked in the field of finance for many years, she decided to take a break when she moved to the USA and this gave her an opportunity to dive deep into the world of art.

For her, painting is a different language and an expression of ideas. All the artwork is inspired by the day-to-day things she sees around her, be it the current political, social issues or simple things from nature. In her work, the subject matter determines the materials and the forms of the art. Smitha strongly believes that public art contributes to cultural, economic and community vitality. Through her art she wants to be part of this experience.

In 2017 Smitha began painting professionally, since then there has been no looking back. Her first group show was in 2017 and from then on she has had many solo and group exhibitions in and around Kansas City. She also had the privilege to jury on many art shows. She also enjoys working on many commissioned works. Smitha now works from her home studio.
