Artist Statement: 
I have worked as an illustrator and printmaker for many years. As much as I enjoy drawing and painting, there is nothing that compares to screen printing. For me it is the perfect medium for interpreting the world around me. I love to take what I see and break it down into defined shapes of color, pattern, and texture.

Suzanne received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before moving to Vermont in 1980.  She has worked as an illustrator and printmaker since that time.  Although she enjoys drawing and painting, screen printing is her preferred medium. She interprets the world around her by breaking it down into defined shapes of color, pattern and texture. Suzanne draws her inspiration from Vermont's natural beauty, using bold, saturated colors and oftentimes pairs different views and perspectives within the same piece.
