Sumana Ghosh-Witherspoon is a surface designer, graphic designer, and fine artist. Born in Philly, she spent a large part of her childhood in India. After studying Communication Design at Pratt Institute in New York, she worked in the publishing industry for several years, designing and art directing for magazines. Although it was exciting, she missed creating art with her hands and also wanted to spend more time with her two daughters. So she moved to South Orange and discovered a passion for patterns and textile designing. In 2020 she created her first fabric collection "Indian Summer" with PBS fabrics. Sumana is always drawing inspiration from her dual upbringing; the colors, textures, and indigenous arts of India continue to fascinate her and influence her work. Through her brand 'shoemona' she sells masks and prints featuring her colorful work, hoping to bring some joy into everyday life.
