ABOUT SUZY, founder of LILY RED STUDIO ♥
I am Wisconsin native. I spent my childhood building forts by the creek and pretending I was an explorer on an adventure that took place within the boundaries of our 100 acre farm. My grandmother was my first art teacher – I still remember her showing me how to properly draw a face in perfect proportion. After studying Graphic Design at UW Milwaukee, I left Wisconsin and ventured to New York City where I worked as a designer and photographer.
Inspired by my grandfather, who ran the family business for 30 years, I decided to go back to graduate school and the idea of Lily Red Studio started to take shape. Upon moving to Chicago in the summer of 2009, I set up shop and Lily Red Studio became a reality.
