About the Artist: Suzie Sullivan

Suzie Sullivan's lifelong passion for craft work began as a child in Cheshire in the UK, with stitching, knitting and crocheting. Throughout her life she has always had hobby projects on the go but could only have dreamt where it would lead. She has always had a fascination for Ireland and all things Irish and moved to Mayo in 2001 with her husband Steve. She loves what Ireland has to offer - music, culture and the wide open spaces - and all of this is reflected in her work. She is now known throughout Ireland and beyond for her work in fibre art, especially felt and silk paper making. She has achieved several RDS national craft awards and has had her work exhibited in solo, collaboration and group exhibitions. She has also shared her knowledge by giving innovative workshops in a wide range of craft skills from her studio. Suzie is a self-taught artist and embraces the challenge of working with new materials and disciplines such as flame worked glass, polymer clay, wire, bead and copper work.

This s a decorative/functional sculptural work that is an expression of my love for all things whimsical and my fascination with children's toys and illustrated books circa 1900. The work is intended not only to raise a smile, but to reawaken in the observer childhood memories of the private world of books, nursery rhymes and poems. The little bowls are intended to hold small items of jewellery.
