Inner and outer landscapes merge into autonomous shapes and are embedded into paintings." Zuzanna is a painter, she draws and she also works in the field of photography. Her biografical connection to cartography is an important part of her artwork. (from 1085-88 she was trained as cartographer, in the Map Department, City of Bielefeld.

"... oh my Fernweh - you just widen my longing and my heart opens towards the sky
- this is were I want to go"
