Susie Ghahremani is an award winning artist and illustrator currently based in San Diego, California. Her client list includes The New York Times, The Washington Post, Chronicle Books, among many others. Susie was kind enough to answer a few questions and provide us with her picks.
Q: Why do you make art?
A: I feel like visual language is the best one I speak, so this is how I must converse if I want to be understood! Plus, I feel happiest when there's a paintbrush in my hand!
Q: Why is it important to buy (or hang in your home) original art?
A: Aside from the ever-important reason that in owning original art you're supporting the work of original artists, I think it's also important to surround ourselves with what's in our hearts and our minds. Hanging art in the home gives us the chance to express that side of ourselves.
Q: When did you decide to be a full time artist?
A: My mom would probably say that it was always the case, but for me, it was sometime around age 21 when I realized it was a daydream that could be attainable.
