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 18-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 folkart. Offbeat color combinations, textural dimension, and visual interest made by dynamic brush work have caught the eye of collectors from both within the United States and around the world. Her collaborations include Anthropologie, Slowdown Studio, and Artfully Walls. Suzy has had the honor of being featured on Design*Sponge, Domino, and HGTV, among other publications.
