Birstein, Suzy

About the artist
Suzy’s childhood dreams of dancing in Hollywood musicals had her falling in love with Frank Sinatra, and then Picasso. As an adult tapping her way through Europe, she became enchanted with the timeless sensuality of ceramics, collage and oil paintings. She is compelled to create archetypal icons embracing Ancient and contemporary world cultures, overlaid with the spirit of song and dance. She longs to merge the power of Nefertitti with the flamboyance of Carmen Miranda. Suzy is an Honours graduate from ECIAD, a devoted artist, mentor and parent. Her work is exhibited, published and sold locally and internationally.
