Suzy studied dance while absorbing Hollywood musicals, film noire and the mysteries of Rembrandt. As an adult, she's been seduced by the sensuous spontaneity of working with Clay, Colour and the essence of Romance.
Suzy's imagery is a marriage of her childhood and adult influences. The figure dominates her work. She is compelled to create archetypal icons which embrace the power of Ancient and contemporary World cultures, overlaid with the spirit of song and dance.
Her work synthesizes and celebrates the interconnectedness and individuality.
She longs to merge the power of Nefertiti with the spirit of Carmen Miranda.
Each stage of Suzy's work has a natural progression. The paintings on pottery are inspired by her sculptures; the sculptures often carry her vessels. Suzy explores the scale and diversity of her vision by creating miniature to life size figures accompanied by luscious, luminous oil paintings referencing these sculptures.
Film, tap dancing and ball gowns entered the arena with “My DeLovely Fever” installation and video.
