Originally from the hills of East Tennessee, Suzy grew up surrounded by color. While living as a military wife in Oklahoma and working as a full-time mother, she began dabbling in watercolor and rekindled her life-long passion for painting. Her family moved to Mount Pleasant, SC where she found inspiration in the rich beauty of the low country.
Inspired by the brilliant landscapes of Charleston, Suzy began her serious study of color. She switched to oil painting and developed her technique of using visible brush strokes to tell a unique story. She specializes in impressionist bold color oil paintings. Her emphasis on color is designed to provoke emotion and perhaps connect the viewer’s own memories to the canvas.
Suzy’s work has garnered numerous accolades including Best in Show and the People’s Choice Award. Her art has been featured in publications and is in private collections on three continents. She teaches group and private lessons in her studio and continues to study and attend workshops across the country.
