Suzanne Homer is a Swiss born, British artist living and working in Newcastle. Her inspiration stems from the architecture she observed as she travelled through different countries whilst growing up. Zanna Designs was launched in April 2007, with the first collection of limited edition Giclee prints depicting Newcastle and Gateshead. To follow, were a range of greetings cards reproduced from her original art work. With a background in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design, she sees her art as more of a starting point to her business. She hopes to make building blocks for the return to producing designs for fabric, which is where it all started in 2001, when she began her degree at Leeds College of Art and Design.
Suzanne's illustrated, architectural inspired collages are created through the combination of illustration and computer graphics. Her aim is to create a story of rural and urban environments and challenge the eye of the viewer to give a different perspective of everyday scenes. The addition of the quirky colour schemes and collages is what turns her very traditional and realistic line drawings into an abstract style.
She currently sells her work in galleries and shops and has completed commissions for a range of customers from private individuals to Newcastle University where, one of her pieces of artwork was presented as a gift to Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal. So far, she has concentrated on producing art work of the North East of England but, she intends to widen her collection and include pieces from other parts of the UK. Suzanne always welcomes commissions.
