Bright and Mo-town tunes filled home studio in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Acrylic, gouache, and pastel
Suzy is a self-taught painter and collage artist with a penchant for quirk and color. Originally from Minnesota, she studied Psychology at NYU before living in and exploring mostly the American Southwest for the decade following. She’s since settled down with her husband and three young children in Coastal Virginia, where she spends her non-studio time secretly recording her neighbors doing shirtless lawn care and periodically torturing her 17-year-old Persian cat with mini party hats. She likes to create bold, lively pieces that infuse personality into a space, and her main influences include colorful vintage textiles, tribal artifacts, and folk art. Offbeat color combinations, textural dimension, and visual interest made by dynamic brushwork have caught the eye of collectors from both within the United States and around the world. Suzy has had the honor of being featured on Design*Sponge, Domino, and HGTV, among other publications.
