SUSIE SIERRA

Born 19 – –

Susie Sierra was born in Brisbane and now resides in Sydney. Early in her career, she pursued acting as her profession, working in theatre, film and television. A relocation to North America in the late 80’s and a season in repertory theatre soon followed before her talent for painting emerged.

During this time, Susie established a commercial art studio in the Rocky Mountains with a group of American artists. She returned to Australia in 1992 and opened her first art gallery in Clovelly, Sydney in 1994.

“From a young age I had a thirst for understanding the nature of life. I grew up riding horses which put me very close to nature. When I was 18, I read Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz which opened up my mind and allowed me a glimpse of the underlying fabric of life. I found this fascinating and began to realise creativity was an opening into a deeper understanding of myself and the world around me. Art became my vehicle into that world of stillness and beauty.”

Today, Susie draws inspiration from Nature and the history of flower painting, including the paintings of the 17th Century Dutch Masters and ancient Oriental flower painting. Her paintings can be found in private collections throughout Australia, North America and Europe. Susie is a former director of PRASAD Australia. PRASAD is an NGO working in special consultative status with the Social Council of the United Nations. She is a foundation member with Shine Global, a leader in hosting live events globally. Susie currently lives in Sydney.
