Suzanne has been working with Vietnamese artists since the day she moved from Tokyo to Hanoi in January 1994 and is dedicated to discovering exceptional artists who are singular and passionate in their expression.

An intimate, creative reﬂection of the culture of Vietnam, the salon is open by appointment only and offers private parties, art consultations, poetry readings, music events as well as other cultural activities.
