"Not only is Suzie an accomplished Plein Air painter, AND portrait artist, but she is one of the nicest people you’ll meet. When having a conversation with her, you get the feeling that she’s really listening. She’ll offer you good and constructive advice, and throw in a couple of favors as well! In the short time that I’ve known her, she’s bent over backward for me. She’s a kind, “giving”, artist.” Marjorie Hicks

"Wow! I learned so much and am ready to go to the next level by way of improved value in my paintings. Suzie was well organized, presented the material in a clear manner and was patient with all the questions I’m sure she’s answered hundreds of times. I definitely recommend her to others!” Elyse Taylor
