Suzanne Owens

An intense appreciation of the natural world and a desire to share her vision of this world is the driving force behind the paintings of Suzanne Owens. Working in both pastel and oil, Suzanne travels extensively in the West and her native Texas in search of subjects to which she feels a connection. She has studied with some of the premier plein air painters in the country, including Skip Whitcomb, Matt Smith, Scott Christensen and Kevin Macpherson. From these instructors she has learned the value of painting on location and the importance of seeing first-hand the colors, atmospheric conditions, and of getting a sense of that place.

"I always find something in nature that attracts my attention, be it the abstract patterns of the land forms coming together, the design of the clouds in the sky, or colors - either soft and muted or bright and bold. Plein air painting offers an endless supply of material for my work."

Suzanne is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and the Pastel Society of the West Coast. She is also a member of Oil Painters of America, the American Impressionist Society, Alla Prima International, Degas Pastel Society, Pastel Society of the Southwest, and Southeastern Pastel Society.
