Hi! I am Suzanne!
Artist, author, and an advocate for women's stories, because well told stories are a means of changing social structures and cultural norms.
I believe in acts of creative defiance—or said in a more gentle way—making creativity a daily priority.
Generosity of spirit with our inner world and imagination is a form of creativity. How we live, listen to, and see each daily moment makes a difference. I think the point of being creative beings is that the universe needs us to pay attention to our curiosity and quiet unheard voices. Once we make something from the voice inside, we get to choose to share the work that comes from the creative output publicly or not at all. This is creative defiance. Either way, change is inevitable.
My goal is to help women tap into their internal strength of visual and written voice. To heal. To grow. To get comfortable within.
SuzZine is made to inspire your tender stories.
A zine is a self-published booklet, like a mini-magazine. SuzZine is 8 pages and full of stories, essays, drawings, games, and creative idea starters. I mail this goodness via post almost every month and include a sticker too.
I am absolutely thrilled to bring you something tangible. The digital world is wonderful, but I don't want to loose touch with handheld objects of quixotic amusement. Keep it or toss it, either way SuzZine will have you saying "huh? what for?" in the very best way.
My work reaches people unexpectedly, much in the same way as wind swings our hair into our face or the sun's rays glow through our closed eyelids.
