Suus Suiker (1966) made her first painting when she was eight years old. Since then she could not think of a life without painting and drawing. The paintings of great painters like: Gustav Klimt, John Waterhouse, Alfons Mucha and Salvador Dali fascinated her. At the age of eighteen she decided to study Arts at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, the Netherlands, where she completed her art studies. After her graduation she worked as a designer for a well-known advertising agency. Since 1991 Suus is working as an independent artist in fine art and fine art photography.
