Susie Hambleton is an Australian artist and designer. She grew up in California and now lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Susie began selling her art about 15 years ago in her homewares boutique in Brisbane. At that time she was painting large abstract acrylic and mixed media artworks on canvas.
Then she went on to design a several art collections, included with her homewares and jewellery range, for her brand Kahuna Bay which was exhibited at design and trade shows in Sydney and Melbourne several times.
Her work has been purchased by interior designers, art galleries, shops and hundreds of happy people around Australia who love her beach and tropical inspired style.
Susie likes to paint in collections of style and colour or theme, so the art will flow from room to room and feel like it is designed for that space.
Her work is designed for tropical and beach style lovers. Her influences are strongly from the South Pacific, California and Asia.
Susie loves the colonial design influences found in Australia and Asia, particularly boutique hotels, old Queenslander style homes and architecture, historic gardens, and the lush foliage of palms, tropical forests and romantic balmy nights.
