Suki Liebow is an award winning contemporary artist who works across multiple mediums and scales using Art as an emotional engagement tool and a platform for social activism.

In Suki’s more than 20 years of research on the impacts of trauma on human behavior and psychology, she came to understand the destructive impacts of emotional dissociation on individuals and our broader communities. Recognizing the significant need and profound absence of resources for productive emotional engagement, it became Suki’s primary focus to develop strategies for productive emotional engagement through the visual arts. 

In addition to her own work, Suki teaches and facilitates artistic engagement to a broad range of humans, young child to seasoned adult, through art classes, workshops, and lectures. She has been a board member of multiple art-based non-profit organizations promoting public art installations, grant writing, and organizing art based programs and exhibitions. 

After a traumatic period of homelessness as a young teenager and becoming a solo parent at 15, Suki founded her first business in her early twenties and has owned three more since. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and spends her time pondering how to save the world through art.
