Of late, she is doing dog portraits and currently is exhibiting at the Millenium space at the Free Public Library in Market Square. Be sure to stop by and see her work; and stop in for a 'wicked good treat!'
Fun chatting with Suzanne:
Where were you born?
Bridgewater, Nova Scotia
What was your breakthrough moment/favourite project?
One of my favourite projects was when I painted 20 of my husbands photos and we showed the photos and the paintings side by side in a joint show at the ABEC.
Where do you work?…and for how long?
I am the owner of Wicked Good Treats, a candy store in Market Square. We were previously Candy Bouquet but I am now on my own and serving our loyal customers with new and fun creations.
What do you like best about uptown Saint John?
I enjoy the varied businesses in the uptown and the great shop owners.
What place on earth inspires you?
Canada, we have travelled across Canada by car and plane several times. Each province inspires me with the Maritime Provinces being top on my list.
Hmmm, not much of a secret, rolo ice cream followed by a hot cup of tea.
You are where you are meant to be at this moment
What book are you reading right now?
Feel the Fear and do it anyway.
Do you have any pets?
I have two Australian Shepherds, a nine year old black tri, Tango and a seven year old blue merle Dugan. I also have a ten year old black and white cat named Oreo Cookie, she rules the household.
What do you like to eat for breakfast?
When travelling I love a huge breakfast of pancakes, home fries, ham and toast. At home a simple bagel does me well.
Who is your favourite artist?
Monet, but I was inspired by William DeGarth a marine artist from Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia
What is your favourite drink?
Spring? Summer? Winter? Fall?
I love all of our season, but the warm sun of a fall day and the autumn colors is my favourite season.
What is your favourite thing to wear?
Jeans and a baggy fleece sweater
Can you play a musical instrument?
I play the guitar but the only one who will listen to me is the cat. I must sound like her when she cries.
What is your favourite hangout uptown?
I dont get much time to hang out anywhere but I would have to say Harbour passage walks are a great place to spend time.
Describe yourself in three words?
Honest, loyal and friendly
