"Age is but a number for the indomitable 80-year-old artist and former cookbook author, Sue Kreitzman. Her personal motto, "Don't wear beige, it might kill you," is more than just a catchphrase – it's a way of life. Nestled in the heart of London's eclectic East End, Sue's art-filled flat is a breathtaking testament to her unwavering commitment to color and creativity.

Walking through Sue's living space is akin to stepping into a kaleidoscope of emotions and expression. Every room bursts with life, from the fiery reds to the electrifying pinks that adorn her walls. No inch of her home is spared from the artistic reverie; Sue's original embellished paintings, folk art treasures, neck shrines, goddess phones, and busts adorned with jewels and found objects blend seamlessly to create a symphony of visual delight.

Sue Kreitzman's home is more than a dwelling; it's a sanctuary for self-expression. Her maximalist approach to design serves as a vibrant reminder to stay true to one's unique artistic vision. In a world where conformity often takes center stage, Sue's East End oasis is a refreshing oasis of authenticity and teaches us the ultimate lesson: to embrace color, creativity, and individuality with unwavering devotion."

Sue Kreitzman talks to the BBC about Spitalfields Market and the ColourWalk

"I'm not an old woman, just disguised as one"
Sue Kreitzman is an adopted East Ender and has lived in Tower Hamlets for over 25 years. Old Spitalfields Market is a special place for her where, with friends, the 83-year-old regularly visits to trawl through the stalls in search of materials for her artwork. The occasion, now fondly known as the "Colour Walk", has attracted more and more people and is quite the spectacle.

Distinguishing Character: In Search of the Eccentric. Episode 1: The Artist, Sue Kreitzman

In this new video series, Londnr talks to different London characters about life, living in London and what eccentricity means to them.

"At LONDNR, we are cultish about culture.

In this episode, Londnr talks to Sue Kreitzman, an artist originally from New York. Launched in 2015 as a digital platform, we’ve since expanded to a print magazine (published 5 times a year) and a lively events programme (LONDNR Club).

We believe the world of culture - the arts, thought, history, lifestyle and more - deserves better coverage. Less stale. Less sterile. Less superficial. Therefore, our mission is simple: tell wonderful stories. We want our writing to spark conversations. To turn into icebreakers on a date, or good anecdotes to share over dinner. And at the very heart of everything, we want to bring likeminded, curious, adventurous, mischievous souls together."
