ABOUT SUZANNE | Art is my first language. I remember observing the colors in a sunset before learning how to read. This passion for color and observation led me to become a ceramic artist and painter with a penchant for fresh air and intrigue in the mystery of nature.
As an artist that wants to preserve the western landscape, I recall the forms of earth I visit, reviving them with clay and paint. At times I will mix actual basalt from local cliffs into my ceramics and reform the earth in my kiln. I am led to define my vibrant composition by the draining of snowmelt in the hills and the way it carves the land while journeying to the river. Dark recesses occurring naturally in rock and earth are my shades, while the colors at the close of each day, which are most saturated, define my palette.
