Suokko Art and Design is a multidisciplinary studio, blending photography, writing, music, art, and design. We—Ann Suokko, Mitchell Manacek, Glenn Suokko—create digital and print perspectives on art, design, and lifestyle.
We convey the integral beauty in the work of individuals who make things by hand, cook food, or express ideas. Beauty in things is important. It might be the way something looks, feels, tastes, or sounds. We find it in the imperfect—the kind of rough-around-the-edges beauty—that leans towards natural simplicity and elegance. It could be in a loaf of bread, potatoes dug fresh from the garden, the weathered side of an old building, a solo piano performance, or a coffee mug. Living in Vermont, our subjects can often be found in our own towns and neighborhoods, where artists and artisans craft and embody the organic refinement that inspires us.
