Suzarita Artist Statement

My grandfather always laughed at me because every time he asked me, “What are you going to do with your life?” I always answered, “I am going to have fun!”  The same is true for my artwork.  I have fun doing it and I hope you have fun viewing it!


I start my paintings by changing the color of the canvas from white to something more vibrant.  I then choose two contrasting colors and work with a limited palette with different variations of the colors chosen and maybe add more color later.  I create super thick paint and enjoy a variety of textures within each painting.  Sometimes I have to get my fingers dirty, literally with paint, because drawing with my finger is the only way to achieve the outcome I am looking for, which of course is always fun!
