Palm Beach, Gold Coast
The best way to describe my art is to describe it as organic. When I start a new piece, I usually have a broad idea of what I wish to paint plus the colours I want to use. However, as I lay paint on to canvas, the artwork starts to develop a life of its own and it talks to me, taking me into directions I initially did not imagine. I find this very exciting and love working this way.
I suppose it is a little like cooking, I use many ingredients such as shapes, markings, layers of colour, texture and hidden messages. I want viewer to enjoy a journey of discovery when viewing my work.

Susanne has undertaken Workshops in multiple art techniques – Life Drawing; Print making; Abstract and Contemporary Painting, Oils, Acrylic and Watercolor. She continues to study online to improve her knowledge and practice of various art methods. She has recently returned after six months in Europe where she undertook an exciting study tour into the best of European art.
Art has always played an important part in her life and how she views the world, and is continually exploring new styles and methods to further develop her own individual style –this is proving to be an exciting never-ending journey of discovery and evolution.
Susanne predominantly works in oils and mixed media. Her off-center´ sense of humor comes out in her work and she offers a story and encourages the viewer to seek hidden meanings. The human form is frequently used to help portray her message. She constantly looks for fascinating colour and shape combinations in both her day to day world as well as in nature.
Susanne lives on the Gold Coast, Australia where she walks along the shore every day. During these strolls she sometimes finds driftwood and other found objects which she turns into small pieces of art.
After a break from painting during her recent travels to research and study art in Europe, Susanne has re-commenced exhibiting on the Gold Coast and has been able to secure her own studio space, a goal of hers for quite a while.
