The freelance artist, born in 1966 in Frankfurt, lives and works in Rodenbach. Her career leads her to new projects and challenges – in life as well as in art. Studying color painting from 2017 with Professor Jerry Zeniuk and Ingrid Floß at the Art Academy in Kolbermoor and Bad Reichenhall, Susanne has provided her work groundbreaking accents. Through the interplay of colors, she skillfully creates the illusion of spatial depth in her multi- layered compositions.
She became known at exhibitions and art fairs as well as through publications in two international art books.
Today, Susanne is represented in private collections worldwide.
“My goal is to challenge, to surprise the viewer of my paintings. I want to encourage them to use the possibilities of life and be open-minded to develop and grow.”
In art, I pursue a unique sense of freedom. Painting is what puts me in ecstasy. I work on my creations – with acrylic paints, brushes, palette knives, putty, charcoal, oil pastels, brooms etc. – until I reach that ineffable moment of happiness. While painting, I am virtually on the hunt for that special moment. To me, imperfection has an irresistible charme. That glimpse behind the facade is what keeps on inspiring me. My art is a symbol for the unusual, for all the flaws and peculiarities that make life colorful.
My goal is to challenge, to surprise the viewer of my paintings. I want to encourage them to use the possibilities of life and be open-minded to develop and grow. Should I? Could I? Would I? … DO it !!! is my motto. I want to break through the ordinary and stimulate thinking. Because if we strive for innovation, we can gain valuable life experiences and contribute to make our world even better.
Through my work I pave the way to the emotions, invite reflection and create an opportunity to deal with the inner world.
