"Inspire and Empower" - Featured Artist - Heidi Sutterluety
From childhood, there are certain ways and constructs of life that have been taught to us. Most of these lead to a common end goal, that one of living a happy fulfilling life. As fantasying as it may seem, a beautiful life is what all our initial dreams and strive for achievements begin with. But on close observation, you will come to the realization that none of these dreams of happiness, whether its career or family, or both, are without the existence of a gorgeous home.
The cliché saying,‘ A house becomes a home because of the people in it’ stands very true, yet at the same time the people too need that house to turn it into a warm and welcoming haven of love and acceptance. A home is a sanctuary for all those who reside in it, a place of comfort from the cruel tentacles of this world. A place where you can be your utmost true self and feel comfortable within your skin, with your people. Many walk amongst us who are gifted with the ability of having a visionary idea for the superficial aspects of a house and are experts at delivering these visions. They are able to turn our houses into elegant and charismatic homes, with their stylish touch and their knack of capturing the house’s and its inhabitant’s essence.
Heidi Sutterluety is an Austrian artist and designer residing in Austria itself. She possesses the charm to turn houses into stunning picturesque homes. She specializes in up imping of old furniture and renovates these into fabulous ornaments to adorn the house.
Currently she follows art trends like Shabbychic and Vintage. Her Instagram page is an ode to her exquisite taste and her talent of transforming these pieces into magnificent furniture. She is very big on recycling things and her work always aims to emphasize on the message of not throwing away. She is constantly trying to reuse and rejuvenate everything that comes her way, by giving it her own special touch.
Developing her career began with the simple yet most harrowing task of renovating an old flat. With this she realized where she wanted to go and has been at it since then. Heidi’s work is truly delightful and she seizes the aesthetic of ‘vintage in a modern world’ very well.
Pride for an artist comes with different components, with Heidi it’s that she is very well versed with colors. She feels like she has a natural relationship with them and can feel every aspect of them. Through this feeling for colors and added sense of style and grace in her work, she produces the finest home interiors.
Loving what you do is a very important thing. Since without the soul, everything is valueless. This stands very close to her heart since she believes that every artist must love and appreciate what they do. They should keep trying further and never stop doing it. Hard-work and dedication will be rendered useless if there is no passion and love for the work.
Jonathon Marc Mendes is her greatest inspiration. His work envelopes the feeling of a warm, lovely antique home. A lot of his inspiration reflects in her work too but with the added flair of her own style.
We at ARTOZE encourage and highly appreciate such actions where artists come forward to stand along with the other fellow community members to share their experiences, views and knowledge through "Inspire and Empower", a series By the Artists, For the Artists in association with ARTOZE Gallery and Exhibitions.
