Suzanne Riley

I am a retired educational administrator, having hung up my formal career cap and plunging brushes first into my "encore career", painting. While landscapes tend to be my first choice subject, I also enjoy painting people, animals, still life, and almost anything that catches my eye and my heart. I started acrylic painting on a whim, joining my then co-workers in a worksite wellness activity painting Van Gogh's Starry Night. Several years later, we moved to a home that now houses my canvases, carts, paints, brushes, and all the accompanying tools that make painting so much fun in my home studio. Other artists overawe me with their talent, creativity, and individuality, motivating me to continuously learn and develop my style.
