As a child, Suzy studied dance while absorbing Hollywood musicals, film noire and the mysteries of Rembrandt. As an adult, she's been seduced by Clay, Colour and the essence of Romance.
Suzy's imagery is a marriage of childhood and adult influences, further inspired by travel and mentoring children.
The figure dominates her work.
She is compelled to create archetypal icons embracing the power of Ancient and contemporary World cultures, overlaid with the spirit of song and dance: Queen Nefertiti meets Carmen Miranda.
Whether working with fired clay, surfaced with lustrously aged infusions, or canvas scrolls of collage and oil paint, her work simultaneously celebrates interconnectedness and individuality.
Suzy’s latest “Tsipora” series, taken from her Hebrew name meaning Bird, exude an exotic earthiness living within the poetic imagination.
Suzy’s work is exhibited, collected, and published locally and internationally.
