Susanne was born in Berlin (West) where she grew up and studied fashion design. She moved to Paris in 1989 and started a career as a milliner. At the same time she developed a strong interest in painting. Susanne created her custom made hats under her own label which she took with her when the family relocated to Ireland and then to Singapore.
It was in Singapore in 2006 that she finally decided to invest herself fully in painting. She does not only paint, but also creates outdoor art, making the natural environment part of her art pieces. Susanne returned to France in 2009, where sh lives with her family and works from her own studio. Susanne Lewest has exhibited her work in galleries in France, Singapore and Germany.
"Susanne's paintings speak their own bold and luminous language, written "dot by dot".. a language she hopes to be within everyone's reach. By combining colour with texture in dots, time and place are over come and lost moments resurrected. The results are visually intriguing works which are at the same time organic and abstract", Jutta Odenwälder for Red Dot Creativity.
