Background and Training:
Susanne is a self-taught artist. She’s recently returned after six months in Europe studying the best of European art.
Art is life and that is how she views the world, an exciting journey of discovery and evolution.
She is an Abstract Figurative painter. Abstract Figurative is style that demonstrates technical skill and at the same time communicates an idea or feeling.
Susanne works in acrylics, oils and mixed media. Her slightly `off-center´ sense of humor can be seen in her work and her art always offers a story for the viewer to discover.
In her work, she uses contemporary ideas often combined with the human form to portray her message. Her aim is to encourage the viewer determine their own truth about her work, to discover things they may not normally see and to let their imagination run wild.
Susanne lives on the beautiful Gold Coast in Australia. Recently she has moved closer to the ocean and walks along the shore every day. During these strolls she sometimes finds driftwood which she has just commenced turning into small pieces of art.
After a break from painting during her recent travels to study art in Europe, Susanne has re-commenced exhibiting on the Gold Coast and has finally been able to secure her own studio space, which has been a goal of hers for quite a while.
