I am an artist classically trained in realism techniques from France and Italy. I have a BA in studio art from UCSD and have been teaching group classes and private lessons (from beginners to advanced) for 8+ years. I help artists develop their own, unique voice and guide them in their artistic pursuits.  I enjoy working with amateurs or beginners, because they have no preconceived notions of how things should be done. However, I've helped artists of all skill levels and offer focused, more advanced classes on color theory, portrait painting, plein air landscapes, etc. If you've been struggling with a painting at home, I'd be happy to he ...

It seems like I've been making art (and crafts & music) since I could hold a crayon and hear a lullabye.  Honestly, I don't remember a time when I didn't think of myself as an artist.  I'm a country girl, so that meant 4H and the local grange hall. My grandmother and mom led us 4H'ers and every Tuesday night we met at grandma's for our meetings. Where we created, crafted, baked, preserved, painted, trained and learned from our elders experiences and considerable wealth of knowledge. All in preparation for that one week in August when our work would be judged against the work of 4H kids across the county at the Skamania County fa ... View Profile

Tutoring sessions in my St Johns studio provide a unique and focused environment for all ages to begin or to develop painting and drawing skills. Here are a couple of students commenting on their experience with me: “Not many teachers have Suzy’s understanding of the craft of painting, but what makes her unusual, I think, is her respect for you as an individual. No two people paint alike, and Suzy’s strength is that she doesn’t try to stuff you into a preconceived mold, come hell or high water. She figures out pretty quickly what you’re about, and helps you get where you’re trying to go.” “Her encouragement and ability to instill confid ... View Profile

My experience with painting has been my whole life; both of my parents are painters. I teach in a very inclusive, dialogue kind of way. I want everyone to participate and communicate, however I realize that some people are on the shy side. I am very open to all personalities and all kinds of people expressing themselves they want to through their art. Everyone has something say, I want their voice to be heard. I myself am more on the quiet side, however I am also very goofy and silly. I use oil paints the most, it is the medium I have had the most exposure to. If this sounds appealing to you, please contact me. I would love to teach you, your ... View Profile
