Uli Smith is a California-based visual artist and muralist, currently residing in Sacramento. Smith holds a Master of Public Health degree from the University of San Francisco and spent ten years working in public health before deciding to pursue her passion for art full-time.
Drawing upon her public health background, Smith views art as a means to heal people and spaces and effect social change. Recognizing the transformative power that public art can have on the communities it serves, Smith began to focus on mural art in 2022 and has since painted fifteen murals throughout the Sacramento region.
In addition to her mural work, Smith is a fine art painter. Her work is characterized by her use of vivid and bold colors, often inspired by the natural world. She uses her art as a reminder to protect and preserve our environment, and to reconnect with the natural world around us.
Smith's art has been recognized and celebrated by various galleries and publications. She has had solo exhibitions with Arthouse on R and Blue Line Arts, as well as participated in group shows at WAL Public Market Gallery, Arts to Hearts, and Brea Gallery.
