Australian artist, Susie Sierra was a model before her creative instincts lead her into the world of art. She worked for Vogue Australia and Cosmopolitan magazine and also performed as an actor in film and repertory theatre in the USA.
Drawing from her experience in the beauty industry and with a mum who was a skincare devotee, Susie was inspired to develop her own luxury skincare range.
"My Mum was passionate about her beauty products and skincare regime. My childhood was filled with the aromas, textures and exquisite bottles of luscious night creams, magical spray mists and evocative fragrances. It was a heady, gorgeous world and I loved how my mother's beauty products made her feel beautiful. They made me feel beautiful too."
At the age of 14, Susie developed her own dedicated skincare regime which she still follows today. Growing up in the harsh Queensland climate, she was fortunate to have a mum who knew how damaging the elements could be. "If it wasn't for my mum I'd have skin like a crocodile today - she saved my skin literally!"
The Susie Sierra range includes two unique and powerful beauty formulas that kinetically boost skin quality, nourishing and transforming imperfections with lasting results. Precious and potent plant oils, enriched with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals and are formulated under strict quality control at their facility in Sydney, Australia.
"I know the power of beauty care because I saw it with my mum. She always used the highest quality products and they not only healed the scars of her teenage acne but she did not have a wrinkle or a patch of discolouration on her face. Her skin was amazing!" says Susie.
"I've never forgotten what my mum taught me. She had problem skin as a teenager and I think that inspired her passion for beauty care. I want to inspire women to embrace their beauty deeply and creatively."
"Nature is my subject. I grew up surrounded by the beauty of the natural world and my paintings reflect this. I feel fortunate to be an artist and try to see the world through fresh eyes every day."
"A plant-based diet nourishes and supports me. I love animals and believe we are the caretakers of our world. I support Cool Earth, a charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction around the world."
"Beauty begins on the inside, with our thoughts and feelings about ourselves and the world around us. Our thoughts become actions; acts of kindness are beauty in motion; compassion is beauty in feeling. Our state of mind has a powerful effect on our health and beauty and the way we look at life influences how life responds to us.
"There are no rules - rely on your instincts and step outside your comfort zone. My style is outside the box. I'm a big fan of vintage, 60's & 70's. Because of my love for animals I never buy leather or fur."
