About Suzanne Pierson
Suzanne Pierson made her living in both Art & Music, always entertained, always entertaining, fascinated and amazed by The Muse! A former gallery owner, college prof, studio artist, school Music educator, singer/songwriter, and an avid world traveler, fun & 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’s 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.
