Demonstrating
BEAUTY THROUGH ART

Based in Bellingham Washington, our mission is to inspire creative sustainability through natural and reclaimed sources. Working mostly with elements of nature, upcycled, and found materials of wood, bone, wool, stone, leather, fur, copper and silver, there is a never-ending potential of design, keeping each work authentic and one-of-a-kind.

 

 

ARTIST AND
SUSTAINOPRENeuR

Suzanne Lundberg, artisan of The Goat’s Coat, grew up in Maple Valley, Washington, where she began making jewelry at six years old. She attended the University of Oregon and University of Hawaii at Hilo, receiving a BA in Philosophy. Her adventurous, curious, and often impulsive nature has taken her across the world, where she spent time teaching English in South Korea and Peru, farming and learning about permaculture in Central America, studying Spanish in Spain, scuba diving throughout Southeast Asia, and other shorter travels. She eventually landed back in her homeland a decade later, in the Pacific Northwest.

Suzanne considers herself a “sustainopreneur,” a recently added term to the Urban Dictionary, combining sustainability with entrepreneurship. Along with her travel philosophy of “there is no getting lost if there is no destination,” Suzanne views her designs as limitless, without boundaries, and following no rules. She believes that the raw materials found in her pieces inspire beauty in it’s purest form, cannot be replicated synthetically or manufactured, and are all around us in the natural world for all to access and mold with our bare hands. In addition to her passion for sustainable art, Suzanne loves trail running, biking, sailing, backpacking, and all things outdoors.

 
NOTHING IS MORE FREE THAN THE IMAGINATION OF MAN; AND THOUGH IT CANNOT EXCEED THAT ORIGINAL STOCK OF IDEAS FURNISHED BY THE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL SENSES, IT HAS UNLIMITED POWER OF MIXING, COMPOUNDING, SEPARATING, AND DIVIDING THESE IDEAS, IN ALL THE VARIETIES OF FICTION AND VISION.
