About Susan


Susan Ellis loves the variety and excitement in expressing herself through her work.

I was born on the last day of 1970 in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch. I have always felt that I was very creative and could achieve things if I set my mind on it. I have always loved working with my hands and creating things.


I am blessed to truly enjoy and to create works that not only reflect something of myself, but may also touch the lives of others. It is an extraordinary feeling to know that my artworks have found their way into many homes, locally and  in other countries and cultures.

While art is much of my life, I am also a wife, a soul mate, a mother and a friend – in this I am complete. I love to prepare healthy food, to engage with others and to capture people, their movement and the deep emotions that bring beauty to our world.
