Love at first sight

Book Cover

Suzi's extraordinary powers of observation lead her to develop a sensational new theory on why individuals are attracted to each other. Everyone who read Love At First Sight, her remarkable book, was transfixed by her theories on attraction. In my 30 years of publishing, it was this book – more than any other – that changed the way I first look at people in relationships.

Although Freud said he was not in a position to teach, in fact he lay jewels at my feet, both in terms of painting and understanding the dynamic between people. This ability,  led to the discovery of why people love who they love, based on the visual dynamic within their face.

After ten years of research, I wrote of “Why people love who they love“. I published a book in 2004 which was published in 17 countries on the subject of the visual cues which trigger attraction and might even lead to love.

Love belongs to three different visual categories and three individual love behaviour groups which define the categories. I used examples of 55 high profile couples from 22 countries across the world to illustrate my theory.

Spin-off artworks from the book are not shown here.

The Computer Software

In 2004 Dorling Kindersley published my book ‘Love at First Sight‘ which was the product of ten years of research but a result of a lifetime as a painter of people. The book was sold in 17 countries world wide using 55 images of well known people – royalty and celebrity to illustrate the theory.

The book is based on discoveries based on a lifetime of intense scrutiny of the face whilst painting portraits. Love At First Sight recieved much media coverage -Richard and Judy interview on ITV, Terry and Gabby, BBC news at One, ITV news -plus radio coverage in theUk and extensive tv and radio abroad in all seventeen territories.

The theories in the book were made into software was developed by Imperial College. The algorithm, which took a year to develop, matches the comparability of different faces, analysing the degree of the visual dynamic between people and how they relate to one another not just visually but behaviourally.

If we accept that subconscious attraction to someone who has the similar shapes on their faces we are one step closer to scientifically finding love.
