About the Artist
Sneha S. is an artist based in Queens, New York. Sneha explored art from a young age due to her rough childhood upbringing. Born in Silchar, Assam of India, Sneha’s family shifted to the United States in hopes to “achieve the American dream.” In turn, the harshness of capitalism destroyed her family barely getting by while also dealing with the strained mental health of both of her parents. In order to cope with child abuse, Sneha turned to art for solace. Art took a pause when life took over being a working adult in New York City. But after getting out of a tumultuous relationship, old wounds opened up and Sneha had to address her childhood trauma with the help of therapy, and of course, art came back into her life. And since then, Sneha has continued to explore her artistic capabilities using materials such as acrylic, ink, watercolor, and color pencil.
