Suzanne takes long walks in places where sea, sky, and land converge. She makes drawings, takes notes, and searches for visual ideas that communicate arrangements of space and luminous light that she feels deeply connected to. With a visual interest in rugged working harbors, post-industrial New England, and ever changing tidal environments, Suzanne works in oil and mixed media painting and watercolor or mixed media collages. In her Guilford, CT studio, she searches inventively with line, shape, color, texture, and value as she suggests the spirit of her beloved locations. She is currently represented by Cove Gallery in Wellfleet, MA, Cape Gallery Framers in Falmouth, MA, Archipelago - The Island Institute in Rockland, Maine, and Wall Street Gallery in Madison, CT. She teaches workshops and private classes in her studio, and is available to teach workshops in other venues. Suzanne is also available for local and distance art mentoring for individuals at any level.


Statement

My current work is about not knowing, searching, wondering, and finding a balance among fluctuating states of being. I gravitate to places where land meets sky and ocean. Walking is my muse, in rugged working harbors, or at the edge of the sea. I spend a long time looking, and find what moves me, by closely observing relationships of shapes, values, and colors, along with the beauty of light and how it influences and constantly changes everything. I begin by drawing random lines and shapes, and quickly erase or thinly veil most of my first marks, in order to keep myself and the work in flux as I build a history of layers. I aim to transport myself and the viewer into a moment of surprising and unknown beauty, as I aim for a strong, yet open arrangement of visual elements.
