Gorjuss™ is a truly beautiful and captivating art brand from Santoro London featuring sweet stripy-socked female characters, wildlife, plants and other natural imagery, and childhood toys. They are pictured in heartfelt situations, often with tender and thought-provoking titles, that resonate with children and adults alike.
Depth of colour and a rich palette featuring rose pinks, ruby reds, sapphire blues and sea greens help to communicate key themes of love, innocence, serenity, and the capacity to dream: "The sheer stillness of the Gorjuss™ girls' poses are accentuated by the movement around them, in their flowing hair or landscapes, offering what seems like just a brief moment of their world and catching a fleeting glimpse of their lives and emotions.”
Gorjuss™ is illustrated by talented Scottish artist Suzanne Woolcott who lives and works in Glasgow. She is married, has three children and a charismatic cat! The focus of her work is portraiture, and for Suzanne its strong appeal is the scope of what can be captured in a moment, the stillness of the Figure and the Gaze looking out at you - themes that she continues to explore though the Gorjuss™ girls. Already internationally acclaimed, Suzanne has exhibited her accomplished paintings and prints at local art exhibitions worldwide, from Hollywood to Hong Kong.
