Biography


 
 
BIOGRAPHY
 
It's safe to say that Suzanne Wolfe grew up in a creative environment.  Her mother, an affable if eccentric woman, was a starburst of creativity who never met a hobby about which she didn't feel passionately.  Her interest range was broad:  from sewing to ceramics; macramé to woodblock printing; French mat making to torn-paper collage.  And, of course, painting, always painting--watercolors, oil, acrylic, pastel.  You name it. "My father and I were relieved that she never fell in love with taxidermy or chain-saw sculpture," Suzanne says, "but these were certainly within the realm of possibility.   Time just caught up with her."  She died at 92.  By then she was making jewelry.   
 
Suzanne can't remember a time she didn't paint.  Making a mess was never a problem.  Her mother loved messes. "That's how you learn," she would say.  "Turn the paper over and start again."  As a child, watercolor was Suzanne's favorite medium, and it still is.  Over the years, she has enjoyed forays into oil and pastel, but she always comes back to watercolor.
