Suzanne Cook’s artistic journey started at the young age of six when she won her school’s art competition.  And, the rest is history.  Her love and passion for art made her design career a foregone conclusion and she has never looked back. Suzanne refined her talent at the University of Georgia where she received a B.F.A. in Graphic Design in 1987. 

From her work to her hobbies and her day-to-day life, everything that is Suzanne is art… Her house is filled with an extensive folk art collection as well as art by herself, her husband and daughter, who both are professional artist.

Suzanne is has a reputation for creating art with a positive, whimsical spin that is always colorful and inspiring. Her dreams really did come true when she was able to become one of Plaid’s Design Inspiration Designers!
