About WhimSicAL LusH

Suzanne Scott is an artist and illustrator based in Dundee working under the name WhimSicAL LusH.

She creates unique, quirky illustrations that feature on ranges of prints, stationery, homeware and more, selling them online and through various shops and galleries. Working with businesses both large and small she helps them tell their stories too – via illustration.

Suzanne has also secured prominence as a public artist with Dundee’s Discovery Walk (in Dundee’s new waterfront), a painted door for Open/Close Dundee, a 3D wooden mural for Roxburghe House, Dundee and has been part of several public art trails, including both Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trails and Maggie’s Penguin Parade, where she was art director and trail artist too.

More recently, during covid, Suzanne worked remotely with children and young people from across Angus to create the Monifieth Art Trail and her Dundee Christmas Card installation outside the Caird Hall in Dundee City Square during Christmas 2020 was a great hit. Suzanne’s biggest project to date is to be unveiled soon, artwork for the new Children’s Operating Theatre Suite at Ninewells Hospital.

As well as working on designs for WhimSicAL LusH Suzanne enjoys collaborating and working alongside others, leading and being part of creative projects. Suzanne enjoys helping others find their voice through art and can be heard shouting about how therapeutic creativity can be.

Over the last few years Suzanne has raised approximately £150,00 for charity with her illustration work and been part of charity teams helping to raise nearly £3 million!!!

    Shazanna Scott its actually you love all ur work that iv seen so far

  2. Hi Suzanne,

    Sorry to have not been through on Sundays.

    Love all the work you are currently doing! Will need to go out and buy another bottle of Gin, just for the great artwork!

    My 6 year old daughter, Anna has created a fantastic story + drawings about creating homes around planet earth and the moon, elaborate rocket ferry’s for the worlds population to travel too and from the moon and saturn, Santa living together with the good witches over the big mountains at the top of the world etc. Quite an elaborate story, that I think could be captured with simple images and a story line. Would you be interested in possibly doing a book together?

    Please contact me via my email address: rodney.mountain@nhs.net

    All the very best for 2016

    Kind regards

    Rod

    1. Hi
      Not at all. I would imagine you’ve been really busy too.
      Delighted to hear that you love the Porter’s Gin label… I’m really pleased with it! It tastes amazing too, so yes, you must go find some. ☺️
      Your daughter’s story ideas sound amazing! What a clever wee thing she is. Yes, I would be very interested in illustrating her ideas and working with you both. Will email you.
      Best wishes for 2016
      Suzanne

      1. Hi Suzanne – just confirming that I will try and meet you at the Freedom hair experience on Wednesday – what time will you be there?

  3. Hi Rod

    Thank you very much! Yes, that would be fantastic and great to meet you too. I am at BrewDog on first Sunday of each month 12-4ish. Failing that just drop me an email and we can go from there.

    Best wishes
    Suzanne
