The Artist Says:

I am a commited plein air painter since direct observation of nature increased the ability for my paintings to have more feeling.


 "The award for Best Representational work was given to none other than Plein Air painter extraordinaire Susan D'Alessio.  D'Alessio's landscapes are subtly hewn in naturalistic colors and capture the movement of the dune grasses and shallow creeks that wind through so many East End landscapes. "     Sabrina B. Mashburn, Dan's Papers
"Susan is a member of the plein-aire artist group known as Plein Air Peconic. Whether you are a new or seasoned collector of contemporary Long Island art you should consider her work."    Terry Wallace, Owner of Wallace Gallery, East Hampton.
I am a plein air landscape painter who lives and works on the eastern end of Long Island. I explore the remaining natural vistas and farmland of the east coast , where the coastal light inspires my work.  I believe the direct observation of this landscape increases the ability for my paintings to have feeling and a sense of place.  The eastern end of Long Island has inspired me since I started painting on site with my mother during my childhood.  After a full career as a product developer, textile designer in the fashion industry, and a public school art teacher, I have returned to my first passion , capturing the East End landscape.  
 Since 2005, I have been a member of Plein Air Peconic, a group of artists whose work highlights the Peconic Land Trust's preserves and other coastal landscapes.  As a member of Plein Air Peconic, I participate in art exhibitions and organize shows which raise funds that bring attention to the work of Peconic Land Trust.  I show my work mainly in East Coast venues.  My work is in the collection of the Sebonack Golf Club, South Fork Country Club as well as many private collections.
