Suzanne has been a Visual Art educator since 2006 when she began mentoring painting students at a university art school during her doctoral research on the painting of light (2006-10). She continued with lecturing and tutoring in The Old Masters, Drawing and Painting until mid 2014. 

Awarded The Australian National University Medal for her humanitarian Honours project ‘Love in the Violent Day,’ Suzanne completed her doctorate ‘Painting Light, Touching Space,’ became certified in teaching, spiritual care (CPE1), Visionary Leadership, Life Coaching and learned East Asian Calligraphy with Kazuaki Tanahashi in Berkeley, California and Tassajara Zen Centre (2017).

Suzanne’s intention is to create soothing, contemplative spaces with her art and courses, so that it might be easier to reconnect what really matters and experience the fulfilling joy of creativity. Her in-person and online workshops, courses and retreat programs focus on developing a healthy mindset hand-in-hand with foundational mindfulness and art skills.

Suzanne’s paintings are held in national private and public collections including The Embassy of Spain, The Australian War Memorial and Canberra Grammar School. Her paintings have been exhibited in group and solo shows nationally since 1997. Most recently her work was shown in ‘Of Colour & Light: Women Abstract Painters’ Biennial’ held in Melbourne. She works from her studio in the Snowy Valley, NSW, Australia.
