‘I started Susanna Nousiainen Art and Design in 2011. I am doing mainly surface pattern designs selling them through agents in USA, but also doing custom work. At the end of the summer 2013 I came up with an idea about cushion covers with my designs. So at the moment I am doing surface designs and small collections which I design and then sew myself.
My aesthetic is Scandinavian simple style but I like to mix elements of surroundings especially from urban environments. I am also variating my style a little bit when doing custom work as helping them achieve greatest potential. ‘
‘Since a young age I have experienced life travelling around, usually on my own, like taking the trans-Siberian train and then continuing the trip for months in China and South East Asia. Also my travels to North America and around Europe had a big influence for the style I am currently creating. I have my studio in Barcelona where I hand paint or draw all my designs, undertaking all the production myself at the moment.’
