“I paint. It’s what I do, have always done, and will always do because it’s who I am. I paint to make sense of the world around me and my place in the midst of it all.”

Canadian Artist Susannah Bleasby

I am a Canadian artist and abstract painter whose art is deeply inspired by nature, colour, by the complex, wonderful world we live in, and from the challenges of life itself.ย  Iโ€™m continually exploring my own inner life through shape and colour, creating vibrant, spirited paintings as a result.

I’m also well-known professionally as Susybee, and under this moniker have amassed a vast body of whimsical, light-hearted and humourous art pieces for kids (and kids at heart!). Along with hundreds of private commissions and murals over the years, I’m a licensed illustrator/fabrics, and was the long-standing Resident Artist at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto
