When Susanne Arvidsson was 13 years old, she started painting in her girls' room at home in Örebro, and since then, she kept on painting. She paints every day because it makes her happy, confident, and harmonious. Her driving force is to always keep developing further, she has an inner hunger that never runs out. Watching the paintings of Susanne Arvidsson makes, you hap-py. She often listens to jazz music when she paints, and her hallmark is women who sings or plays in an orchestra. The works are also filled with birds, cats, and flowers. Her paintings are large, the style is powerful and when she paints more abstract, you can feel the 60s shining through. Susanne Arvidsson has lived in both Tanzania and Kuwait and therefore her art bears traces of it. In Kuwait, she was an esteemed artist. Among other things, she had the privilege of making ceiling paintings in private palaces and showing her paintings at one of Kuwait's largest state art exhibitions. And while in Tanzania, she painted an incredible amount. Zebras and Maasai were her favourite motifs and she often created works of art on silk fabric in her outdoor studio. Susanne Arvidsson is also working as a picture and painting educator at a large cultural school in Örebro.
