SUHANA MEDAPPA, DESIGNER
Meet Suhana Medappa, the “right brained and right handed” protagonist of this post, who, after a bit of trying and testing, figured out that a mainstream career path limited her creativity. That, and the unstinted support of an extremely broad minded family gave Suhana the liberty to experiment with her career, though always in the creative field.
With a degree in textile design and experience working as a designer with the Satya Paul brand, Suhana set up a screen printing studio called The Print Journal (2011 – 2015) to explore experimental screen printing with participants and help them express the creative in them, she then moved on to the role of Creative Head for Nool by Hand (a handloom revival initiative in Erode, Tamil Nadu). Suhana, currently is a Design Manager with The Fuller Life and spends all her free time pursuing art, being inspired by the work of artists from around the world and learning new art techniques and trends. On being asked what keeps her motivated she says, “the quest has consistently been to seek out the one thing that gives me a limitless supply of expression; art does that for me.”
