Susy Boyer


Susy Boyer is a freelance illustrator living and working near the beach on Queensland's Gold Coast, where she is raising her three sons.

After graduating from The Qld College of Art in Brisbane, Susy spent 5 years working as a graphic designer on magazines in Sydney and London before taking up illustration full-time. She loves working in publishing, especially children's books and has illustrated over 50 titles mainly for the educational market. Her latest illustration project The Gobbling Tree, is her second picture book.

'I work mainly with chalk pastel, watercolour and coloured pencil in my illustration work, and pastel or acrylic on canvas for my paintings. The subject matter in my work is varied as I like to draw and paint the many ideas and silly thoughts that constantly course through my head. I am inspired by people and nature, in particular the ocean and beaches. I'm very passionate about colour and love exploring all combinations I can make to find a pleasing result. I think this explains my quirky attraction to licorice allsorts.'

Susy is interested in art, design, photography and sport and gains inspiration and motivation while running, swimming or walking on the beach.
