Who I Am
My name is Suzanne Codi and I've loved all animals, but especially dogs, all my life. Though I love nature as well, and enjoy painting trees and flowers, I always go back to the animals. Their sweet and often very funny nature inspires my work.
I like working with clay, and transforming vintage pieces into different versions of themselves. I also have a love of decoupage, which I mix with painting on the more decorative pieces I call " functional art", like lamps, boxes and trays. For the holidays or to memorialize a dear departed furry family member, I have been making custom "angels" for many years, all one of a kind, with vintage fabrics, feathers, fur and jewelry. The last few years my focus has been on endangered species, to help bring awareness to our rapidly disappearing fauna.
