“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, by the complex, wonderful world we live in, and from the challenges of life itself.  I’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 I am the long-standing Resident Artist at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto
