Suzanne takes long walks in nature and in small towns, searching for visual elements that excite her eye and mind. Her keen interest in color, shape and texture, found primarily in the New England landscape, inform her vision. Added to this interest Suzanne's experience as a quilt artist is clearly visible with her exquisite use of pattern and composition within her collages.
"I work in my studio nearly every day because this is where I come alive. Surrounded by beautiful materials and tools, I create compositions with emphasis on color, shape, and texture. These elements are the focus of my process as I hand paint a variety of papers with acrylic paints, in a full spectrum and value range. With a color idea in mind, I choose a few papers that excite my eye and harmonize well together, and the search for magic begins."
