Hello! I’m Suzie and I’m an illustrator and yoga teacher from London based in the Surf Coast, Australia. I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve, and I try my best to live as compassionately and sustainably as possible. My creative career began at the age of ten when I began making and selling beaded jewellery, which inspired me to study jewellery design at Uni. After a few years of working as a jewellery designer and maker, I packed up and moved to Australia where I am now very grateful to live by the ocean with my beautiful husband and our toy poodle.
My creative endeavours and passion for yoga and meditation are deeply integrated, and my work is heavily influenced by the natural world, compassionate living, and energetic rituals and practices.
I’m happiest with a fineliner in my hand, music in my ears, a cup of tea by my side and incense swirling around me. When I’m not drawing, teaching or practicing yoga, you’ll find me studying graphic design, swimming in the ocean or immersing myself in nature.
