Suzette started painting in the early 90′s; she studied traditional oil painting for 2 years, and for several years after that, took classes and workshops with different instructors, trying out different media and techniques, after a while settling down with her favourite medium, acrylic paints.
While she started out with very traditional renderings of florals and landscapes, her work eventually evolved into a more painterly style, which slowly became more and more abstract over time. Today, she paints mostly bright, colourful abstracts, with the occasional semi-abstract subject just for fun.
A very active artist and volunteer in the local art community, she has been on the executive of the Garibaldi Art Club for several years, she has served on the Board of Directors of the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, and co-ordinated the annual Art Studio Tour. She has participated in local art festivals such as Art in the Park in Maple Ridge, and the Festival of Arts in White Rock.
Suzette is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Groups to which she belongs include the Fraser Valley Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the Garibaldi Art Club of Maple Ridge, and the Group of Nine Artist Group of Maple Ridge.
Suzette’s work has been accepted into numerous juried exhibitions and she has won several awards. She has exhibited in many group shows and in a wide variety of venues. She sells her work through her website at www.SuzetteFram.com.
