Growing up in New York, Suzanne frequented the Metropolitan, the MOMA, and reveled in the Avant Garde art scene in Greenwich Village.  After receiving a Bachelorís degree in Studio Art and studying for a year in Paris, she came to Colorado as a graduate student at the University of Colorado.  She has a B.A., M.P.A. and a Diplome from Lí Ecole du Louvre.  A 20 year resident of Vail and Breckenridge, Suzanne now resides in the countryside of Douglas County with a panoramic view of the Rockies.  Since 2001 she has funded an annual art award which is given to an outstanding art student at her alma mater in Maryland.

The style of her abstract landscapes and expressionistic pieces may be generally described as "Lyrical Abstractionism" as seen in the work of Sam Francis and Helen Frankenthaler.   The bold use of color in her more recent pieces is influenced by the the Color Field Movement and particularly by her studies with Gene Davis, a noted member of the Washington, D.C. Color School.   All her paintings are oil on canvas.
