Suze Shore is a freelance illustrator and visual artist from Ontario, currently living in Vancouver, BC. She graduated from the BFA program at Mount Allison University (Sackville, NB) in 2007, and went on to complete a certificate in Professional Illustration at Algonquin College (Ottawa, ON) in 2009. Over the years Suze has created work across a broad spectrum of styles and mediums and in mid-2019 she left the animation industry to pursue an independent artistic career.
Suze’s work frequently explores themes of physical self-identity and mental state vs outward presentation. Currently she is creating a body of work (working title, ‘The Pandemic Series’) which attempts to parse the anxiety and often-conflicting emotions of living and working during the Covid-19 global pandemic. This series has led to self-teaching mediums such as coloured pencil and embroidery, during which Suze has found a passion for mixed media works that layer acrylic paintings with vibrant embroidery and beadwork. She hopes maybe some day people can see these works in person from less than 6 feet away.
