SUZANNE SOMMER

Romantic Impressionist Painter

Suzanne was born in Strathfield in 1953. As a child, she loved to draw and paint. Suzanne began painting seriously after studying landscape painting with Robin Trindall, Allan Fizzell and the Meldrum method with Frank Martin. She also studied life drawing at Meadowbank Technical College. Suzanne taught at Willandra Art School and is a member of Drummoyne Art Society.

Suzanne has a romantic impressionist style. She works in both oils and pastels and has a love for both landscape and figure paintings. She catches the light and colours of life. Suzanne feels that it is a matter of playing exactly the right note in the symphony on canvas.

Public acceptance of Suzanne's work was immediate and far reaching. She has won numerous awards for her works. Some recent prizes include the Sir Vincent Fairfax Award; first prizes in Tumut (1992), Picton (1993) and the Opera House Combined Art Society of Sydney Award (Best Oil 1995), as well as many Most Popular Choice awards. Collectors from all States and overseas have acquired her paintings.
