Suzanne deLesseps
South Freeport, ME

After more than 30 years as a landscape gardener I now paint full time both at home in Maine and wherever my travels take me. I spend several weeks each year painting the countryside and villages of France, Italy or Scotland. As an artist, I find the change of scenery and culture both challenging and exciting. The experiences and memories serve me well in the studio during the winter months. I work in both pastel and oil. I paint en plein air as often as possible, gathering information that later serves as inspiration for more intuitive painting and experimentation in the studio. Then the actual process of painting becomes the main objective. The outcome is often unknown and that’s what makes it exciting!
