Sam Suttie was born in South Africa and made the move over to Australia in 2008.
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 elements from nature composed as 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.
