SUELLYN SCOON’s first studio was just 16 inches by 23 inches, about the size of a cutting board! In fact, that’s exactly what it was! an old wooden cutting board that she placed on her lap or propped up against anything that would stabilize it. It was portable, affordable, and the only thing available to an exhausted mother with four little boys. Over the years she had to adapt to many types of studies in cities and countries around the world, but they all have one thing in common with her cutting board studio: the ability to trigger my mind to enter a place of pure raw possibilities along with the unabashed joy that an artist alone in her studio experiences.
We are honored to be showing some of her earliest works of and this is a chance to own your own SCOON
