Suze Thomas presents a curated selection of charcoal and oil-painted portraits featuring the stories and faces of inspiring individuals in this new exhibition at G3 Artspace.
Brought together under the theme of 'optimism and gratitude’, Thomas seeks to pay homage to individuals such as Jake Edwards from Outside of the Locker Room, an organisation that provides support and mentorship to athletes, as well as personal heroes, including her father, whom she celebrates for his acts of wisdom and generosity.
These portraits and stories seek not only to highlight the incredible acts of altruism in our community, but also to uplift the everyday heroes in our own lives whose stories inspire us to reﬂect on our own sense of optimism and gratitude.
Welcome to Suze Thomas Art
Suze Thomas is best known for her ability to capture true character and expression in her portraits.
Originally trained and worked as a Textile Artist, her motivation for the Arts continued being involved in areas such as Promotional flags, Real Estate Drawings, Signwriting, Visual Merchandising and eventually leading into her love of Portraits and Pet Portraits.
"I love the challenge of achieving a visual personality in my portraits.
It is so very rewarding to see the enjoyment of my clients upon sighting the finished works.
I feel I am now emerging and developing my artistic voice with my original portraits and I am looking forward to what is next!"

"We were so lucky to have Suze paint a portrait of our son Addison. His beautiful smile just pops from the canvas just like it does in real life. A moment of his life wonderfully captured forever!".
'Suze was able to capture the character of our two precious dogs in the drawing that she did for us. We have it in our living room and receive many compliments.'
'We were so incredibly grateful to Suze for sharing her creative gift and presenting us with a beautiful portrait of our daughter. Suze has taken the time to speak...'.
