Hi, my name is Susanne. I was born in Rostock, GdR, where I lived until 1989. At the age of 18, before the fall of the inner-German border, I escaped to West Germany. Later I studied Architecture and Art at the „Muthesius Kunsthochschule“, Kiel . I also studied for one year in Madrid at the „Escuela Superior de Architectura“.
After my studies, together with Michael Landschütz and Stephan Landschütz, I founded the design studio SALZIG design,  where I worked for a few years as art director. www.salzigdesign.com
In addition I helped the Landschütz brothers intensively in founding of their brand SALZIG Sporthocker. www.sporthocker.com
In summer 2016, I began to go new ways and concentrate on my own passion. I like a lot to draw, to experiment, and to consistently reinvent myself.
In parallel, I have been giving workshops in Berlin youth centers since 2016. Primarily I draw portraits with the children there.
Not to mention, I am a mother of two wonderful children.

I also do commissioned work and participate in lifedrawing sessions.
Pablo Picasso said, „Painting is just another way to keep a diary.“
I feel the same way and have been maintaining my drawing journal since 2018 on instagram where you can see many drawings, photos and even poems of mine. www.instagram.com/susemabuse/
