About the Artist:
Suzy Pierce’s paintings are explorations of atmospheres and ocean elements. They are expressions of her mental landscapes. For Pierce, the act of painting itself is an emotional journey that connects the past and present with a peaceful existence. Her compositions explore vast spaces of ocean and sky with special attention to the horizon. These works are greatly influenced by the time she spent with family in Sea Ranch, California.

To create these seascapes, Pierce manipulates paint with layers of reflective materials infusing glistening light into waves of dissolving media. She emotionally connects the viewer to nature. Images emerge as the canvas is transformed and becomes a visual pathway to serene spaces of harmony and balance thereby evoking a powerful sense of calm.

Pierce earned a BFA in Film, Video, and Performance at The California College of Arts. In addition, she obtained a degree from Fortman Studios in Florence, Italy in Painting and Drawing. She recently left her long-term career in human resources and retail management to return to her love of the arts. She and her fellow artist husband own and operate Pierce Art Camp. Both are current practicing artists and enjoy raising their family and painting together.
