We welcome Suzanne Savage Brewer to North Light Gallery. She is a painter on fire, having waited many years to pursue her dream of painting full time. She writes about her life:
"Growing up in Maine's Aroostook County gave me time to explore and contemplate the beautiful world around me. I have a vivid memory from when I was about 5 years old of crawling under the low hanging branches of a white cedar tree to lay in a patch of varigated bishops weed carpeting the ground there. The afternoon sun broke though in patches contrasting against the shadows from the branches of the tree above. It was a simple yet profound moment.
Like many artists, I started drawing and painting at an early age. My parents indulged my tendencies and encouraged my efforts. Adult life brought with it responsibilities, marriage, raising a wonderful son and a career in home design. In 2011 I closed my home design business to become a fine artist full time. Painting under my maiden name " Savage", I work in oil and watercolor depicting the coast and inland scenes of Maine. Often I work "en plein air" striving to capture one beautiful moment in time. "
