Susanna Hesse is a self-taught artist living in Cape Town. She prints using gel plate & linocut techniques, illustrates in ink & watercolour and paints in acrylic & oil. As an artist she is is drawn to explore diverse ways of engaging with one's inner and outer selves. For her, art is both an escapist way of survival in today's society and a hopeful journey of self discovery and growth. Her art expression stems from a fascination of relationships between people and society, as well as the environment. It leads her to explore styles that allow visualization of abstract complexity in layers.
