Suzie Porter

Suzie Porter is a contemporary, abstract Australian artist
working in oils, cold wax, acrylic and mixed media.

Her works are an attempt to capture the emotional response to a place, relationship or moment in time, expressing her thoughts through colour, texture and mark marking.

With a lifelong obsession with art of all kinds, Suzie is always experimenting with new techniques and materials as her works evolves.

Not surprisingly, Suzie’s love of art saw her chose an artistic career and is a full time designer, running a boutique studio in Brisbane, Queensland.
