About the artist
Suzy’s childhood dream to dance in Hollywood musicals had her falling in love with Frank Sinatra, and then Picasso. In 1980 she graduated with Honours from ECIAD. Her drive to evolve and share has led to extensive travel, attending and leading numerous master workshops throughout BC, USA, Mexico and Greece. Suzy creates and teaches from her studios in Kitsilano and 1000 Parker St. She has had numerous solo and group exhibits in Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, United States, Europe and Japan. She is forever enchanted by the timeless sensuality of ceramics, collage and oils. The “Tsipora” series (Suzy’s Hebrew name meaning Bird) are a composite “self”– exotic and earthy – expressing love, loss, longing and the quest for transcendence. A few highlights: 2017-09: Biannual Art/Travel workshops to Greece. 2014: "Ceramic Slippers" commissioned for "Tap Grace Awards" 2008: "Motion Pitchers" commissioned as gifts for Academy Award nominees for Best Actors & Directors Suzy’s art is exhibited, published and collected locally and internationally.

So excited to share my new sculptures and collage/oil canvases! The “Tsipora” series embrace the ancient power of Nefertiti with the flamboyance of Lady Gaga
