Akiko Suzuki

I am a textile and mixed media artist living in San Francisco CA, USA and graduated in Visual Design at Kyoto Art Junior College in 1986, studied photograghy, video and 3D creation there. I began quilt making in 1990 and currently teach contemporary quilt practice; am recipient of numerous art quilt prizes and awards in Japan and internationally; am held in private and public collections worldwide. Since 2014 I have participated in Global Art Project produced by my partner Carl Heyward. As founding member I’ve participated in group exhibitions and workshops as well as collaborative studio settings in Italy, America, Mexico and Senegal.

My work expresses the invisible nature of thought, of skin sensation, the poetry of Love and Eros or the presentiments that occur prior to thought. Intuitive works are born from everyday life as are novels. The words borne out of the flood of my imagery become poetry and are visualized in works as abstractions through paint, collage, sewing and fiber works.
