Hi, my name is Susan Ruiter, born on November 6, 1969 in The Hague. I grew up as a calm and quiet girl, a dreamer. And actually I still am. I can be in my own world completely. I can walk past people on the street because I’m lost in thought. In those moments the best ideas come up.
As a child I was always busy with craftwork, drawing, painting etc. But only when I was about 17 I realized I excelled in drawing. I like to draw people and animals and love round shapes, humour and colour. The combination of these preferences, led to the beginning of my cheerful, colourful ladies.
I soon noticed that my paintings bring joy to people. And so I discovered, that with my passion, with what I love to do, I can make the world a little happier.
