Suzon Lagarde is an emerging artist, enthusiastically engaging with life through painting, drawing and etching.
She likes her practice to be playful and responding to her daily life: expect Suzon to carry sketchbooks everywhere and to inject the same love in finished paintings as in the less official bits-and-bobs.
She’s currently on a Portraiture Diploma at the Art Academy near London Bridge, after having studied 3D modeling for video games in France.
2018 has been a turning point for her with many wonderful opportunities: she's shown and sold work in various group exhibitions in London, has been finalist of UK and international competitions, and was lucky to paint the wonderful Geraldine James on Sky Portrait Artist of the Year 2019.
She’s also grateful to be one of the young artist taking part in the ‘In The Studio’ program with the Mall Galleries. An exhibition will happen on August 2019 at this prestigious London based gallery.
She has just been sharing a residency and ran Portraiture workshops with Andy Sczech Cass Art Islington.
Three of her paintings have been selected for the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours exhibition in April 2019.
She'll soon be sharing her biggest body of work to date in a 2-person show coming in May with the talented Inma Garcia-Carrasco.
