Susanne Kasielke
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

It’s your journey. Remember. Dream. Live. And Laugh! 
Susanne Kasielke is a German artist, illustrator and surface pattern designer. She creates vintage inspired digital collages, which combine multiple mediums and techniques (from abstract mixed-media paintings to realistic pencil drawings). Digitally Susanne combines, alters and improves the different elements, while coincidence and imperfection play a big part in her work: She loves to experiment with digital technology to create unexpected texture and depth.
Susanne believes that the past always plays an important part in our lives. Without the past we wouldn't have important memories and we wouldn't be able to grow & learn. Her art is a reminder of the past, but at the same time it opens the door to a phantasy world that leaves room to escape reality and dream.
Remember yesterday. Dream tomorrow. Live today. And don't forget to laugh! A day without laughter is a day wasted (Charlie Chaplin) – Laughing is for Susanne like breathing fresh air: absolutely essential.
