About the author
Susie Frazier is an American artist and designer with a sixth sense about the interior elements that soothe the soul and calm the mind. A pioneer in the modern day maker movement and one of Cleveland's original reclamation artists since 1997, her passion is for turning distressed materials into objects of beauty. But her true gift is designing them in a way that embodies a feeling of serenity.
Living most of her life with undiagnosed ADHD and anxiety, she developed a methodology for calming herself through design choices influenced by nature. With over 41 million people in the United States living with these same conditions, she now openly shares how she manages her condition through decorative decisions. Her self-taught principles for fostering wellness, backed by a growing body of scientific research, have found their way into every aspect of her business including her art installations, custom furniture, retail products, television content, and now her first book, "Designing For Wellness."
She is 2018 Emmy® award-winning producer and on-air personality, earning regional accolades for her locally-aired TV pilot "Movers & Makers with Susie Frazier," which featured the process and personalities behind her earth-inspired design projects for interiors. For over two years she has been the brand ambassador to Mont Surfaces, one of America's leading suppliers of natural stone, engineered quartz, and porcelain slabs for the building industry.
Running an all-female company for over twenty years, she has proudly created design solutions for some of the most prominent organizations in the world, including Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Sherwin Williams, Westin Hotels & Resorts, Baker Hostetler, Kimpton Hotels & Resorts, Nordson, Orangetheory Fitness, lululemon, MarshBerry, The NRP Group, Greater Cleveland RTA, Destination Cleveland, and Crain's Cleveland.
