About The Artist


Suzanne Siminger grew up in Santa Monica, California, knowing from a very early age that she was an artist. She attended Chouinard Art School in Los Angeles where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree. After graduation Suzanne joined the Peace Corps and served in Brazil. Her main employment was at KGO-TV (ABC) in San Francisco doing courtroom drawing and news graphics for which she won an Emmy Award. At age 40 Suzanne went back to school and attended the San Francisco Art Institute, earning a Master of Fine Arts degree.

Like many young artists, Suzanne experimented with many subjects (figurative, abstract, expressionistic, etc.) and materials (oil, charcoal, pastel, etc.) before settling on contemporary realist landscapes, both in watercolor and oil. Her work is in many collections, both local and abroad. Please visit my website at suzanne
