EVERY GREAT IDEA IS SPARKED BY A GREAT NEED.
When Urban Road was founded in 2010 by self-taught artist and illustrator Suzie Atkin, the need was apparent – there was no way to bring high-quality original canvas art prints into the homes of everyday art-loving Australians.
Suzie’s dream soon turned into reality as she pioneered the way to making beautiful and affordable artwork accessible to savvy art lovers. Joining Suzie as co-owner in 2013, Mishelle Morgan brought with her invaluable expertise in operations and product development, forming the other half of the dynamic duo leading Urban Road in the pursuit of becoming Australia’s go-to artwork supplier.
With the addition of home decor items, acrylic artwork, and, most recently, an amazingly diverse poster collection, our catalogue now includes over 1000 unique and beautiful items. Along with our rapidly expanding collection, we’ve now sold our artwork to over 8,000 customers, supply products to over 200 stockists spanning the entirety of Australia, and have shipped our products all over the globe.

MEET THE TEAM
Urban Road’s very own creative genius and chief boundary pusher rolling with 24K unread emails. Suzie is responsible for honing all of the world’s creative energy into beautiful artworks and making magic happen season after season.
SALES & OPERATIONS DIRECTOR
At the helm of the Urban Road ship, Mishelle is doing everything, everywhere, at all times. She’s the backbone of the business, and makes sure everything runs like a well-oiled, yet aesthetically pleasing, machine.
WHOLESALE ACCOUNT MANAGER
Often affectionately known as the Queen of the FAQ, Laura is the friendly face that liases with our Wholesale accounts and works super hard to provide 10/10 service at least 100% of the time, sometimes more.
A stickler for brand guidelines and borderline obsessed with the alignment tool, Melissa can make even the most boring document look like a piece of art. She juggles tasks like a boss - handling campaigns, branding, collection launches and all things Marketing.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
Mandie is the superstar that works with our Commercial clients, handling the who, what, where and why of every project, making sure even the biggest jobs go off without a hitch.
If there was a competition for the World’s Sweetest Human, then Felicia would win it. Hands down. She has the phone voice of an angel, and will never make you feel silly for asking questions, even though she already knows all the answers. Seriously, you should ask her something.
PRESS & SOCIAL MEDIA
Making it her personal mission to stay up to date with what’s trending, Sarah manages all things social. She is our in-house vocalist, spends an inordinate amount of time choosing the right emoji, and probably loves exclamation marks a little too much!
Deb is our Jill-of-all-trades. When she’s not whipping out random facts about Rock’n’Roll bands, she’s in charge of resizing, colour-checking, CSVing, and making sure all of our artwork files are print-ready and in tip-top shape. She also prints, trims, and ships out all of our rolled artwork orders.
