Suzanne is a retired Family Practice physician who graduated from the City College of New York (BS Art) and was a member of the first graduating class of the New England College Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford Maine. After completing her residency at Mt. Sinai and Cook County Hospitals in Chicago, she practiced medicine as a US Public Health Service physician at the Menominee Tribal Clinic in Keshena WI and then joined the Deckner Clinic in Green Bay, practicing for 25 years. She was elected to the DePere School Board in 2000. She has loved drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, but did not start painting until taking art classes on her days off from work. After graduating from the Kewaunee Academy of Art in 2010, she moved to Oahu where she discovered the camaraderie of other artists who paint en plein aire. She now participates in Art Shows with WAG, the Pastel Artists of Hawaii, and AHA. An avid swimmer, she walks her effervescent border collie Lucy each and every day.
