Always being captivated by painting, drawing, colourful imagery and textile, it was no surprise that Suzanne set her sights on Vlisco’s design department after graduating from the academy.
Suzanne’s signature handwriting is not easily defined, as she enjoys exploring numerous approaches:
“As in many Vlisco fabrics, a lot ‘happens’ in my designs, and various styles can be seen. My designs can be floral, moving or ornamented and are often inspired by stories of my life, or plants that have a special ‘power’ or meaning to them.”
In her designs Suzanne hopes to convey a narrative and the pleasure, imagination and enthusiasm with which she created them.
For example, one of her first Vlisco designs remains one of her favourites.
“ I wrote a short story with this design, about a penguin from the South-Pole, who migrates to sunny Colombia and experiences new things.”
