Suzanne Leighton is a complementary healer, fascinated by how to use art as a medicine. She is interested in the effect of colour on the human body - how it can change one’s mood and have an uplifting or calming effect. Some go further and say it has an effect on different organs and restores balance and creates healing.
She says her work is not avant-garde or experimental or political and it doesn’t entail throwing paint on the canvas or being reckless and leaving things up to chance. Rather it follows the traditional, classical methods of colour mixing and juxtaposition; the layering of endless glazes and washes.
She lives in Cape Town, South Africa.
