Sam Suttie was born in South African and made the move over to Australia in 2008. The transition had a deep impact on her creativity resulting in a painting drought. It would be ten years before she would be able to get back behind the easel and find her lane. " It was like I surrendered, I stopped worrying about what people thought of my work, my focus was on the process and the joy"
Sam's work has only been shown to the public since 2018 and has already been recognised as an emerging artist.
Working from her home studio perched on the South Eastern side of Mount Tamborine she is able to immerse herself in her craft.
Her work mainly depicts still life arrangements. These arrangements are created in her imagination with the use of reference material and sometimes three-dimensional objects.
She has a keen interest in political, religious , climate and social topics and hopes to incorporate more of these elements into her work going forward.
