Susannah Livengood is an illustrator and concept artist living between the east Tennessee area and Bethesda, Maryland. Primarily self-taught, Sue focuses on character design, illustration, portraiture, storytelling, and creative writing.
Sue's content is primarily on original work with some fan art scattered throughout. Media such as Guild Wars 2, Ghost in the Shell, LEGO, Elden Ring, Studio Ghibli, and others are sources of inspiration. Sue values the importance of variety, experimentation, adapting, learning, and the never-ending journey to grow alongside her works.
Sue's origins online stretch back to around 2005. Known initially as Lady Kopaka [later briefly Lady Kaguya] in a community, she was well-known for her art and holds an expanded and dedicated following today. In addition, Sue was known for her creative writings, which became canon in the BIONICLE storyline and a fanfiction novel that earned acclaim.
Fast forward, Sue can thank the quirky niche community for helping her find a purpose--creating purposeful art, sharing fantastical stories, and interacting positively with others. Between loyal friends and followers' support, she has been able to weather various challenges and setbacks.
On the side, Sue has also worked as an art teacher, grocery clerk, and occasional nanny over the years. She enjoys getting lost in the woods in her free time, zoning out with music, playing video games, being an overzealous mom friend, and volunteering locally when possible. In an alternate universe, it's said she likely became a reclusive druid hermit and folk singer-songwriter.
Susannah also focuses on education and awareness of chronic illnesses, mental health, and self-care. In addition, she does her best to be a positive and helpful influence among friends, communities and for her sense of personal growth.
