Om meg

Mitt foto
Susann Brox Nilsen/ kunstnernavn Susi, født i Tromsø, Norge. En berg og dalbane, fargerik, en notorisk dagdrømmer, stor svakhet for blekk på kroppen og søte ting. Eier en rosin med svart pels- aka en liten minigris. Finner inspirasjon blant egen livserfaring, surrealisme, tatoveringer, graffiti, tegneserier og i bunn og grunn alt som skiller seg ut. Jeg bruker maling som terapi, mange av mine bilder er selvportretter, men kunst er alltid hva du (tilskueren) ser i det selv.

About me

Susann Brox Nilsen/artist name Susi, born in Tromsø, Norway.
A rollercoaster, wildly creative, colorful, a notorious daydreamer, weak for bodyink and sweets. Owns a black raisin covered in fur aka a tiny minipig.
I find inspiration among life-experience, surrealism, oddities, tattoos, graffiti, cartoons and generally everything that breaks from reality.
I use painting as therapy, a lot of my work are self-portraits, but art is always what you, -the viewer, make of it.

The bee-Goddess

This is a portait I just finished for a dear friend of mine. It's very personal and represents many important elements in her life.
The honey bee queen represents many things. Fertility and generations, imortalety and resurrection. Protecter and sacrificer.

She's one of my top favourites so far...

FISHBOWL


So I've been in my fishbowl again! I've had some incredible last months, with blooming imagination and the urge to create. When that happens, you got to use it for all it's worth...!!

As an artist you always face a period of being a zombie...you know,- when nothing creative comes to your head.
You can stare at your white canvas for hours, get really pizzed because nothing comes to your mind, then start to cry, and in the enda - finally give up while you're eating a 6-pack of donuts.

These last to weekends, I've participated in 2 markeds, it's been so much fun! I worked my ass of to produce a motherload of accessories - and luckely it was worth it :)

 ......Bling bling......

 I bought a really dull wood-display for my jewelries, and decided to pimp it up with a little Susi-art...! Much better huh?


.....gnam gnam.......

 Trying out these new bracelets for my collection, they have snap-buttons on! Snapping is FUN!

Oh! New for this years Xmas! Gift-cards with my new wiener-dog!! Perfect huh!? hahaha.

Me with nice shopping-bag eyes!

My partner at the marked was my sweet friend Camilla (Mille's skatter) - she creates AMAZING knitted treasures. I grabbed 2 scarfes her the collection the second she packed them out!



The girl hiding under the table?
Oh .that's Me packing out my stuff at the 2nd marked!

Pop up-marked

A lot of eye-candy at the Pop-up marked this weekend!!







These boots are made for walking

You know when you're keeping something for years in the closet, and you're not using it, 
but you don't have the heart to throw it away? 
I figured I could touch up my lovely, purple sandals 
with some oilpaint, instead of letting them turn grey!
They're still in progress, but I'll deffently
be using them more now!

Birthday present for a dad

A friend of mine wanted a custom Susi- painting for her 
dad's birthday ! 
Among the info she gave me, I picked out his favourite things to do as well as
characteristic features of his face.
This was such a fun project to do!
