Description This was my first ever sunflower painting. A bit of a study in combining colours. I very deliberately chose this aqua sky to contrast with the bright yellow gold of the sunflowers, and then pulled in all the darker hues of greens and blues in the leaves and stalks.

I've been painting and selling my work online and in galleries for nine years now. My work resides in hundreds of private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, Spain, and Switzerland. This is how I make my living and support my family.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. I hope the artwork speaks to you in some way and that it gives you much enjoyment when you look at it.
My name is Suzanne and I’m a self-taught artist working in acrylics.
Painting is something I wanted to do for a long time before I started doing it, born out of a desire to play with colour. For years I found myself falling in love with colours, one after the other, needing to surround myself with objects in those colours. But it wasn’t until I moved west and settled in the mountains that my desire came to fruition.
Now I paint every day, inspired by my surroundings. I love the whimsical nature of trees and flowers and tend to put most of my energy there, translating what I see into terms of light and shadow, energy and movement.
