    WAL is my home group of artist friends. I have painted with many of you and some of you have already taken my workshops in which I cover color theory and a variety of skills necessary to achieve mastery in your work. This year I will do more of a deep dive into design and composition. Discussing strategies for building solid paintings that achieve good design, rhythm, balance and etcetera. Along the way, I’ll show you examples of my own work and artists whose work I admire and we will get outside too, squinting our way to making solid designs of our own.

    You will experience informative and humorous classroom instruction along with daily time at your easel.

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
