A vibrant creative from an early age, Sooz first carved a successful career in radio and television as a talented wordsmith. Winning the prestigious Double M and Golden Stylus awards.
Following her husband from the city to the outback of Australia, Sooz left her successful career behind her, to start a family and begin a personal journey of discovery. A creative journey that took her from the pen to the paintbrush! Her naive artworks as effervescent as the artist herself.
With a strong community spirit, Sooz has since facilitated art experiences for over 600 primary school children, with positive tactile outcomes on both paper and canvas. This culminated in two highly successful exhibitions that raised thousands of dollars for the lucky Sydney school.
Securing a position as an Arts Facilitator in the disability sector, Sooz spent the next 17 months enthusiastically exploring creative processes with a dynamic group of intellectually disabled adults. During this time, Sooz nurtured individual artists and facilitated the growth of the arts program through multiple exhibitions and networking with the wider community.
In April 2008 while seeking to develop as an artist at an intensive art course in Italy, Sooz also took a photography workshop in Venice. Enthralled by the immediacy and the creativity of the medium, her passion for photography was ignited.
