“Somsara” translates to “the wheel of life” in Sanskrit, but she prefers to interpret it as "beautifying through art and design."
A Graphic Designer by trade, Somsara's work weaves in layers of interpretation and explores the boundaries between art and design.
Her longtime love affair with paper, typography, and printing techniques continues to inspire new methods and connections.
Somsara is an artist and Art Director living in Pasadena, California. Her daily project ArtDesign35 was installed in its entirety at Wallspace Gallery Los Angeles in June of 2012 and the project was named one of the Top Ten Sites for Designers by HOW Magazine. In 2008 her work was part of a group show in Los Angeles entitled Los Angeles Loteria! that was on display at Los Angeles City Hall, San Francisco Center for the Book, and Burt Green Fine Art Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles.
