Sudnya Shroff is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Altos, California. She immigrated to the US from India as a research assistant in graduate studies at Iowa State University in 1995. After 5 years at Intel as a hardware designer, Sudnya quit engineering in 2002 to pursue her passion for the arts and design which she has used extensively in her activist and social work as a voice for marginalized populations – with an emphasis on vulnerable women and children. She works on the ground with non-profit grassroots organizations she supports philanthropically in India (migrant remote tribes), Greece (humanitarian and environmental aid and education for unaccompanied refugee minors) and the US (cancer research, parent-child separation at the southern border, women’s reproductive rights). She leverages the power of art (paintings, poetry, film, fashion, installations) for storytelling and for maximizing impact.
