Born in South Africa and raised in Canada, Suzie Jellinek is a contemporary abstract painter. After attending FIT in New York with a successful career in Fashion, Suzie decided to pursue her passion for painting full time. She is influenced by the Mid-Century Modern painters and the Impressionists, specifically their compositional studies and rough drawings. She is curious about the relationship to different colors found in nature and how they play off each other. She plays with color, texture, shape, and pattern and is inspired by her own interpretation of the natural world around her.
She resides in Connecticut. Her work has been placed in many private collections. She has also had a collaboration with Restoration Hardware and General Public Art. Most recently, one of her paintings was hung at Pear Tree Point beach in Darien CT in association with The Darien Art Council.
