BIO

Suzanne Miller is a contemporary abstract artist known for her thought-provoking artwork. Through her expressive use of oil paint, she delves into personal, political, and social current events, creating pieces that resonate with viewers on a profound level.

In 1996, Suzanne came upon The Leo Marchutz School of Painting & Drawing in Aix-en-Provence, France. Driven by her passion for art, she quickly enrolled and set off on an adventure with just a backpack. Immersed in the captivating French culture, she honed her skills by painting plein-air, still life compositions, and portraits. Aix-en-Provence, renowned for being the hometown of Cezanne, granted Suzanne access to historical painting sites such as Château Noir. She also drew inspiration from studying the works of esteemed artists like Van Gogh, Giacometti and Rembrandt. Returning to America proved challenging, as Suzanne had become deeply connected to the French art scene.

Suzanne’s talent has garnered recognition through numerous exhibitions and awards in both America and France. Her captivating artwork graces public spaces and private collections alike. Today, she resides in Orlando, Florida, constantly evolving her artistic practice and exploring new creative horizons

 

Nature Weeps

Nature Weeps

“Suzanne’s painting presents a vivid green field that symbolizes nature’s vast, enveloping presence – a force that is insistent and dominant yet portrayed with an elegance that captivates the viewer’s senses.”

STATEMENT

I begin with what’s on my mind in that moment or my mood. Sometimes it starts with a color I want to use. I do not visualize what I want to create. I do not work from sketches. If I am in a Flow state, it all becomes natural. I improvise with what begins to happen. I seek to become lost, letting a greater source guide me in actions. I create because I always have. It is a need, a drug, love.
