Artist Bio:
Suzanne lives and works in Manhattan and is perpetually inspired by the creativity and energy of the city, as well as her national and international travels. Subjects for her paintings literally seem to leap in front of her. She has an MFA from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Despite having to hold down a day job, she has maintained a studio space with the same group of fellow artists for 20+ years. Her studio is currently at the Rope Factory in Greenpoint NY.

Artist Statement:
In my travels I often take photographs that capture a personal experience or observation. I then crop the photos to create a more graphic image, unusual vantage point or composition. I edit the unnecessary details concentrating on color, shapes, gesture and point of view. There may be literary or historical references to the imagery, but my goal is to convey the essence of that place or subject as it appears in my memory.
All of my paintings are a challenge to the viewer to see a common or ordinary subject in a new way.
