FLORIDA ARTIST, SUSIE BETTENHAUSEN
When it comes to art and design I just freely create – I don’t worry about the rules too much. As a result, I have no guidelines to adhere to and no fences around my creativity. My work isn’t limited to one specific style – it is constantly evolving and reflective of my current environment.
I’m southern through and through! I grew up in New Orleans and Alabama and later ventured out to Texas for college. After graduating we had a whirlwind of exciting moves that fueled my inspiration and creativity including a few years in the UK where my first son was born. While you can develop artistic skill, having a creative nature is just something you’re given from the beginning. There’s no other way I can imagine living my life!
The southern environment itself and the history behind it. It has such a mystique that lures me in. The architecture in the South was my first great creative love and it’s just grown since there.
