“I am a blend of the most powerful cultures in the world” - Sumita Batra
Sumita Batra is the creative artist to the stars. You’ve seen Sumita’s art on the pages of Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Mademoiselle and American Salon; and gracing the faces of celebrity beauties like Naomi Campbell, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Madonna and Jennifer Aniston. Her artistic eye has been focused over the course of a lifetime through the lens of diverse, exotic cultures, creating the perfect blend of East and West for more than 25 years.
She is the author of the book, The Art of Mehndi by Carlton Books & Penguin Viking and has made two documentaries; one on her sikh heritage called NamasKaar and the other "Em Didi- Sisters" on vocational training for survivors of human trafficking in Cambodia.
She is the CEO of Ziba Beauty, a chain of salons that specialize in The Art of Threading in California and at Harrods, London. She has also founded an eponymous brand that focuses on eyes and brows called Sumita Cosmetics.
