Born to a family of gifted inventor-engineers, raised in post-Sputnik middle America, with aptitudes in math and science, SUZANNE was channelled into those fields at an early age, making her way into the world of art-making at 20-something. She earned a BFA in printmaking and drawing in 1973, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Suzanne is a lettering artist, painter, and printmaker whose eclectic interests meld in the diversity of her artists’ books. She weaves word and painted image with form, content, and structure into spaces which invite the reader to engage, examine and inquire. Her books blend abstract and representational imagery, rich color and surface treatments with textual content and contemporary lettering to create work that obscures the line between word and image, legibility and abstraction. Suzanne’s work is exhibited widely, and her books have been acquired for private and public collections in the U.S. and Europe. Among them are the Pierpont Morgan Library, The Library of Congress and the rare book collections of Harvard University, Yale, Princeton, Bowdoin College, and the Boston Athenaeum.
