Sussan, who is sixteen, was born in Queens and currently attends The Dalton School. To Sussan, art is any form of self-expression. The purpose of art is to make an idea, emotion, or opinion known and to provoke thoughts within those observing the work of art. She began focusing more on her art last year when she was going through a tough time. She typically makes paintings. Her favorite artist is Hope Gangloff. Her mom and best friend are the people who inspire her the most. Some of Sussan’s hobbies include running, music, and of course creating art. She knows Latin and speaks Spanish and French.
