Meet Suzan Lind
Suzan Lind grew up in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, New York with her five siblings, in a small apartment close to the Verrazano Bridge, playing stickball in the streets and eating the best pizza money could buy. Being in a large family of eight, with very little money, learning how to make something from nothing was both a natural progression, and necessary for Suzan’s instinctual skill at crafting. She has fond memories of a life full of creativity; decorating shop windows around Halloween, sewing her own clothes, knitting, crafting costumes, baking and decorating cakes, and spending endless hours drawing with her sisters in their kitchen. Every year she would wait with anticipation for December to arrive, when she and her siblings would paint the windows of her 3rd floor apartment with images of the winter holidays. From the street below, everyone could see, and it was this early in life Suzan saw the joy of art come full circle as it brought smiles to unfamiliar faces.
Suzan continues to live a creative life, forever exploring the unlimited potential of the imagination, expressively conveying images and ideas in artistic ways and mediums. Her professional artistic career began in the early 1990’s when she worked as a computer illustrator, just around the time CorelDRAW made its debut. After moving around the country for several years and dabbling in many art mediums, from mosaic tile to painted furniture, Suzan finally settled in South Salem, NY in 2000 where she started managing her own art-based business. It began with the sale of original paintings. She has exhibited and sold paintings in solo and group exhibitions, fine art shows, galleries, and online. Her work has been sold to collectors close to home and as far away as Hong Kong.
