Hi, I'm Susie, a designer and illustrator with a playful, eclectic style. I love color and experimenting with new materials. When I'm not painting or tinkering with type, I love trying new restaurants (my favorite way to be a tourist!) and listening to comedy podcasts. (Big thank you to Stephanie Shadden for shooting my portrait photos, and Enriko Matos for the product shots.) More at http://www.susieallendesign.com

Hi Susie! It was so nice to visit with you at Barrique. I love your delightful designs. Hope you enjoyed your visit to San Francisco, and found some delish Thai food while here. : )
Susie - I have a question about one of your designs. Could you please email me at email@example.com?
Just posted my 2 cents, hope it helps. Big fan of your work, you will do great!!
Hi Susie, I'd be happy to give you some feedback on your forum post but I may have to circle back later as I'm at the office right now. :) BUT I have been meaning to tell you that I ordered my first Minted art print last week and it was yours! I've had my eye on Thaddeus for some time now. He be perfect in our playroom! I have two other of your prints saved in my account to order in the near future too. I'm doing the newspaper & flowers one for my daughter and we're having a little boy in February so I have to wait for his stats to order the sail boat. :) And I had no idea they were all yours until I looked closely at them! I'm a true fan. lol ttys!

Thank you so much for your comment, Susie!
Thank you so much for the note, Susie! I just adore your work and am always excited to see what you'll come up with next. Your kind words really mean a lot :)
Hey, Susie! You need to join the group of designers on facebook. Look me up and send me a friend request on facebook and I'll invite you to the group (I can only invite friends to join). :)
Hey Susie, Thanks for your comment on my quilted comfort design! I'm going to try your suggestion but won't be able to until Monday morning (out of town and just have my laptop with me) so may not be able to get any feedback before the challenge ends. Guess I will have to trust my own instincts... not always easy for me to do... haha :). Thanks again!
hey Susie, I just noticed a couple of our recent submissions are similar, your fresh squeezed and my Elegant tag, and your Lemonade journal and my Lemons and mints journal. I hadn't seen either of yours until just now. Ha even the name on our journal both has Lemon in it. How freaky.
Thanks Susie. I went back to gold but chose a deeper shade and added a stroke to the text. Would love additional feedback anytime. Always love your work!
Hi Susie- Thanks so much for your feedback. I tried it with green instead of the gold... let me know what you think when you get a minute please! Thanks! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/64299
Thanks Susie! I'm digging your art challenge submissions!
Thank you for your comment! I think I do as well...at least not with the font I am using.
Susie! Thanks for ur comments. Ur designs are one of my fav too.. Always excited to see what you come up with.. especially those textures!
Thanks for your comments Susie. I will definitely give them a try tonight.
Congratulations Susie on your elegant design! So pretty :-)
Thanks, Susie - I really appreciate your kind remarks on my wall! That backer makes it for me - the beauty of it, is someone can go without it if they are so minimal. Not TOO kind - that design really is amazing. :)
Darn you, Susie!!! Your design is so much cooler than mine! Back to the drawing board... :)
Hi Susie, thanks for your comment. It's my first time I made it into top 30. I am very excited by it.
