my zine people

art process collage SuzZine zine

Each time I begin the process of making the next month's zine in my mind I am thinking, "what would my zine people want?" Ooof! Yea, I think this way! In February "my zine people" received a gift of a hand made hand stitched greeting card to use as they wish. I thought it would be fun to 1) try something new and send work that I make that is experimental, and 2) do some reverse gifting (February is my birthday month). Now that this date has passed, I can show you what I made! Enjoy. First, I got out...

Along with my Zine Project... I paint and fill sketchbooks! Lots and lots of sketchbooks! My sketchbooks can be seen page by page on YouTube. Combining writing, drawing, painting and all things Suzanne we reach what I call the world of Suzannisms, my philosophies. I no longer believe in a utopian world. No one person or people can know what is best for all. I found a word that feels more true: protopian.

shhh, say nothing an artist introduction

drawing painting stickers SuzZine zine

From early 2018 through the end of 2020 I worked on one project. A series of paintings and a book called Shhh, Say Nothing: an honest look at silenced voices. Then, I wanted to make work of a friendlier tone and feel. At the beginning of 2021 I began painting dots. This new series is called, The Dot Dilemma: incessant internal chatter that matters. In June 2021 I imagined, drew, wrote, and published my first zine. SuzZine! I also designed a ton of stickers this year! One series is called Tender Stories. Another series is called Say Something. And a...
