Susie Hosterman’s Art is Heart.

She does a bunch of stuff. It is a bit overwhelming, actually. And while, ideally this is the place to self-promote– Susie is uninterested in doing so at this time. Perhaps later, on another day, she will put precedence on her story. But on this day, Susie’s priorities remain Family, Well-being, and Health. 

After experiencing discrimination for a body that malfunctions once in a while, Susie has realized the world does not need yet another run-of-the-mill graphic designer. The world needs advocates. People suffer daily, and needlessly so. People are shamed for their sadness, shamed for their disabilities, and in the workforce culture that was built over 50 years ago and remains, for the most part, untouched, those people needlessly suffer in their occupational selections. Why? Who was it that ingrained that to Overcome Adversity means to berate those who are sick and unable (whether temporarily, or permanently) to ‘help’ them do so?

Since when has shame motivated you to repair yourself?


So Susie is here as a guide. She leads you safely to waters where your injuries are honored. Your insecurities are respected. Together, she wants to work with those willing to grow a little– even a small step– towards whatever business goals you have.

Along the way, she will introduce you to other experts who accept you as you are.

But again, that’s just her mission in a nutshell. She’ll be back soon enough to elaborate on these topics, but in the meantime, feel free to explore her website for art, photography, and graphic design she enjoyed creating with healing-focused professionals.

Susie would like to dedicate this website to those she has recently lost, including her Grandmom, Jeanne Malenke, and good friend, Chelsea Counsil.

I worked with Susie on the logo design for my brand new business. She was super helpful in the process of honing in my message, my value proposition, and fleshing out what I wanted my logo to represent. I am very pleased with the final outcome, and enjoyed being part of the creative process, as we refined and tweaked, bouncing ideas off of each other, and Susie, ultimately going from a rough draft to a professional computer graphic. I could not be happier with the experience and the logo itself.

Friendly and receptive, I can tell that Susie enjoys doing this kind of work, deep in her heart!
