CCN Tiverton Branch Leader: Suzie Sutton
Suzie is a Wife, Mother and Grandmother originally from the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. She moved with her husband Gabriel in 2012 to the south coast of Devon, then in 2017, they moved back to the countryside and now live in mid-Devon in the Tiverton area.
Suzie is a prophetic artist, a sculptor and crafter, who loves to use her hands to create art and crafts. Suzie studied at Banbury art college in association with De Montfort University Leicester and graduated with a BA, Hons in Fine Art.
Suzie has a diploma in youth work and applied theology and was a youth worker for most of her working life. While working for the youth service alongside senior schools she developed workshops to encourage young people who were struggling with mainstream education, which included arts and crafts to provoke their thinking and encourage them to express their feelings. She has also worked in a youth worker role within the church context over many years.
She sought to develop her own artwork, curating exhibitions and selling her work both in the Cotswolds and London.
Suzie now paints the pictures God lays on her heart so her art is quite diverse varying from symbolism to abstract. Painting in her studio for exhibition or at Christian events. Painting to express worship or prophecy. She also leads workshops where she encourages others to listen to God for their artistic inspiration. She believes we are all able to use our creative gifting to glorify God and extend his kingdom.
