Born in 1951, Suzanne Powers grew up in western Pennsylvania.  Since 1977 she has been a resident of western Washington, spending most of her time between the shores of Fidalgo Island and the wide open spaces of the Methow Valley.Serious study began at the University of Washington, Seattle, where she graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art. Early and formative influences have come from many artists and styles including the landscapes of John Singer Sargent,  Nicholai Fechin, and exploration of color by artist Sergei Bongart and the Russian Impressionist movement.  With early  work consisting of representational watercolors, she now looks for a more  impressionistic approach in both oil and watercolor painting. 
Light is what attracts her to a subject, always the light, but the mood and feeling of a space are what keeps her there.  Her current work  is a combination of studio and plein air work.  Painting on site allows her to be spontaneous and responsive to the environment, and to follow a painting wherever it takes her.  Connecting with the landscape she paints and expressing her  emotional response to the environment in color, light, and form is often a challenge, but always exciting.  
Her original oil paintings are a celebration of the natural beauty that surround us, its power and fragility.  With a palette inspired my nature's offerings, her work features the rugged landscapes of the Great Northwest and beyond.  She is a member of the American Impressionists Society, Oil Painters of America, Plein Air Washington Painters, and the Salish Sea Plein Air Painters of La Conner.
