"The quest is to arrange pigment on a flat surface and make the viewer feel as strongly as I feel when I look into the eyes of a Carravaggio or a Van Gogh, to speak where language falls short."

--Suzanne M. Shifflett


Nationally acclaimed San Francisco artist, Suzanne M. Shifflett, makes her Southern California debut at Flazh!Alley Studio with her latest series, "Inked Hearts: The Tattoo Portrait Series."

A professional tattoo artist, Ms. Shifflett uses her experience with art on skin to paint a strikingly sensual and evocative series revealing intimate values of the aficionados of the "indelible ink."

Ms. Shifflett is currently using her many artistic talents producing character designs for a new project for Wes Anderson, director of Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic and The Darjeeling Limited.

Flazh!Alley Studio

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
