Australian artist, Susie Sierra was an actor and model before her creative instincts lead her into the world of fine art and beauty. She modelled for Vogue Australia and Cosmopolitan magazine and also performed in film, TV and repertory theatre in the USA.
Susie's botanical paintings have been featured in a host of lifestyle magazines including Vogue Living, Belle, Inside Out and Australian Artists. "I love painting flowers and I’ve worked with artist’s oils for over 20 years so developing these fragrant, nourishing botanicals for my skincare range was a natural, instinctive choice for me.”
“Immediately I was drawn to the fragrance of the oils. They had such a powerful effect on my emotions. I knew right away that I wanted to bring this element of emotional transformation into my beauty products," says Susie who incorporates meditation as an important part of her daily beauty routine.
In fact, a key driver for Susie came from an experience she had in meditation. "I received a message one morning in my daily meditation when a river of liquid gold was revealed to me. Messages such as this often indicate a higher purpose so I was inspired by the event to learn about the extraordinary properties of gold for skincare made it the hero of my brand."
Susie is committed to supporting Australian programs for animal advocacy. A former director of Prasad Australia, an NGO working in special consultative status with the Social Council of the United Nations, Susie currently lives in Sydney.
I had a vision one morning in my daily meditation. I was suddenly transported to a cool, dark cave beneath my garden. I reached down to a stream that was running through the cave to discover it was a river of liquid gold.
Nature is my subject. I grew up surrounded by the beauty of the natural world. I feel fortunate to be an artist and see the world through fresh eyes each day.
A plant-based diet nourishes and supports me. I love animals and believe we are the caretakers of our world. Through the sales of our products we support Australian wildlife sanctuaries and charities.
True beauty begins on the inside, with our feelings and thoughts about ourselves and the world around us. Our thoughts become actions; acts of kindness are beauty in motion; compassion is beauty in feeling. Our state of mind has a powerful effect on our health and happiness.
I keep an open mind and welcome innovation. My style is relaxed and individual. I love vintage 60's & 70's. Because of my love for animals I never buy leather or fur.
