Suzy Evans is from the Kamilaroi people of Moree in North-west New South Wales and it’s from this connection that she draws her artistic inspiration.
Her works of acrylic paints on wood, paper and canvas are “colour abstract representations of cultural symbols.”
Suzy’s work, ‘Bengerang’ was shortlisted in the 25th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards held at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and has work in the permanent collection of the University of Technology, Sydney.
Not content to only practice as an artist Evans has set up a small business ‘modern murri’ that sells lino-cut printed greeting cards as well as a range of paper, fabric and wooden products.
Evans has lived in both Moree and Sydney and in 2009 she returned to live full time in Moree, which is in the heart of her traditional country.
Suzy is now working with the National Aboriginal Design Agency.
