ABOUT SUZANNE
Suzanne Pierson made her living in both art and music, always entertained, always entertaining, fascinated and amazed by The Muse! A former gallery owner, college professor, studio artist, school music educator, singer/songwriter, and an avid world traveler, fun and beauty fill her days. Suzanne believes "if you’re not having a Good Day, you’re not paying attention!" When Suzanne is not exhibiting in a gallery or painting in her Crested Butte studio, she is outdoors in all seasons, on the trails and ski slopes dancing with her paint brush expressing the beauty she sees and interprets en plein air using acrylics or watercolors, often painting on wood as well as canvas. Find her learning along with her students sharing the wonders of art in the mountains or casting in the rivers for fresh new ways to express a personal vision.
If this class is sold out, please contact Program Director Melissa Mason at 970-596-5497 to check for cancellations and/or get on the waiting list.
