Meet the Makers: Suzanne Field Art

An invitation to meet our sellers...

We have an amazing community of creatives and artists here at Cheerfully Given who love Jesus and are passionate about sharing Him through unique and excellent designs.

So we decided to take the time to introduce them and show off their inspiring products!

She's been with us a while now but consider this your official introduction to Suzanne Field Art, a delightful combination of fine watercolour art and joyful Bible verses. We know you love her products, now join us in our 'behind the scenes' peek!

Suzanne, it is such a delight to finally sit down with you and hear the processes and faith that goes into Suzanne Field Art.

We absolutely love having you as part of the Cheerfully Given Seller Community! I have to say, the first impression of your work is joyous colour. Is this a new thing or is this a long standing signature of yours?

You noticed! I love colour & light!

Even as a little girl, I always dressed in as much colour as possible!

Often I pray over a theme or scripture that many of my art collections grow out of, and I create products—Colour and capturing light sing through my work.

So when did that love of colour translate into the business we know as Suzanne Field Art? What was the catalyst?

I started my business at the beginning of 2020 before the world went into lockdown! So I started painting collections, hanging them in my garden, filming and posting the story that inspired them on social media.

At the start of 2021, I launched my website and became a Cheerfully Given seller. Learning the digital world has been exciting and challenging at times, but I love every minute!

What have you learned about the Living God since starting your business? How has He made Himself known to you in the journey of being a business owner?

I've learnt that Abba loves every part of my business, and I regularly submit all my ways in my business to Him. He's connected me to many other beautiful creatives and businesses and highlighted the right resources for the next stage.

Mostly, I've found that He likes me to dream big with Him over it, extending it beyond what I feel I could achieve in my strength.

What inspires you in your creativity? (I feel like colour is going to end up mentioned...)

Scriptures, keywords, light and colour!

The Psalms and Song of Solomon have been recent inspirations to many of my collections.

He led me into a spacious place as the anthem I felt on my walks and eventually painted landscapes.

Talk us through your process... how do you get from a blank canvas to a finished product?

All my products come from watercolour ink paintings. Watercolour inks are currently my favourite medium! I love how the overlapping colours blend and bleed together using these.

I have days to play with colour combinations and palettes.

Sometimes I ponder and think about paintings like my Brave Heart and Jesus Asian Lion, and suddenly, I just know it's ready to be painted.

He was my first print - the king of multiplication!

I tested him out on mugs with Scriptures, notebooks and cushions by professional printers. He now lives in many homes, Christian and non-Christian, carrying the presence of Jesus.

Let's finish with my favourite question: What is your favourite item currently in your shop and why?

My favourite item is my Brave Heart Lion print.

I often put him with Scriptures speaking on courage or God's strength. He's Jesus and reminds me of C.S Lewis' Aslan.

I have a few items with him around my house!

Aslan was who immediately came to mind when I saw it too! It's such a vibrant and powerful print. Suzanne, we are thrilled to learn a bit more about you today and look foward to seeing what other colourful art appears in your shop in the future! Thank you very much for your time with us today.
