Suze Shore is a queer mixed-media artist from Ontario, currently living and working in Burnaby, BC. They specialized in painting at Mount Allison University (Sackville, NB) where they obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and hold a certificate in Professional Illustration from Algonquin College (Ottawa, ON).
Over the past several years, Suze has expanded her practise by self-teaching textile and craft mediums including embroidery, beadwork, and textile sculpture. These mediums are used in conjunction with painting to create elaborate mixed-media pieces rich in texture and detail, through which Suze attempts to evoke her neurodivergent experience. In addition to personal themes of self-discovery and identity, Suze is also interested in bringing attention to issues which affect the larger neurodivergent community such as inadequate representation and harmful societal misconceptions.
Recently Suze has been drawn to oceanic imagery and the emotional potency of the sea.
