Biography


Susan Greer, a Bay Area native, is best known for her iconic Northern California landscapes. Expressive brushstrokes, elegant simplified forms, and a rhythmic quality of the natural world work their way into her paintings in a way that stirs an emotional sense of place. Her paintings embody a serene sensitivity that is both soulful and honest. Viewing her work, one is transported to a calm, peaceful corner of the world.
Her paintings - depicting the land she knows and loves - hang in private and corporate collections around the world.  
 
Susan holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from SFSU and UCSC. She worked as a Product Designer with Broderbund Software, as a Curriculum Designer at Skywalker Ranch, and as an Editor at Addison Wesley Publishing Company before devoting her time to full-time painting. As part of her fine art studies, she's been fortunate to study with masterful teachers, including Daniel Keys, Wolf Kahn, and Ken Auster. Susan is a member of Oil Painters of America, The American Impressionist Society, The California Art Club, The Arts Council of Sonoma County, The Sebastopol Center for the Arts, and The Marin Arts Council. She has also served on the Sonoma County Museum Board as well as The Steering Committee for Sonoma County Art Trails.
