Paintings Of
The Heartland
Suzanne is a juried member
of Oil Painters of America
and the Illinois Artisans
Program. She is also a
member of the DuPage Art
League. Her paintings and
drawings have won many
awards and are collected
by private, corporate, and
public patrons throughout
the United States.
What Suzanne says about her own work: "A body of work I named "Heartland Images" is an evolving
collection of oil paintings inspired by the farmland, prairie remnants, and grassy open spaces of the place I
call home. I've lived in the Midwest for over thirty years, and I've grown to appreciate its great beauty. I
began painting landmarks, because I was intrigued by the look of gritty, blue-collar mid-western river towns
and disappearing rural areas. Many of those early works went to private and corporate collectors. As the
original series shrank in number, I wanted to continue the project but with a distinct difference. Instead of
local landmarks, I went looking for the common places, those areas we pass by every day.'

"Visiting the cities and farm country up and down the Fox River Valley, I realized this area we live in is so
beautiful, so underrated. Many of my colleagues travel extensively and seek out exotic subjects, but I find
so much material to paint in the country near my home. The spectacular colors and dramatic shadows are
right there at the highways edge, across the fence, at lanes end. Sadly, my subjects burn down every year
or are demolished and paved over, disappearing under the demands of development. Perhaps such areas
will live a little longer in these paintings. They are my portraits of the heartland."
