Suzanne Marie started practicing art at a very young age with the guidance of her father. She attended the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago and later was accepted to the School of Fine Arts at Southern Illinois University. After completing her education, Marie taught in Venezuela, discovering the Latin American culture, which still influences her work.
Marie depicts her work as "an expression of promise, a tapestry of images, a celebration of light." She describes her paintings as a mix of "metaphors-symbolic shapes and hues-harmoniously combined with its distinctive technique." Suzanne Marie is dedicated in supporting a world of peace and equality. Her work has raised funds internationally for development centers for women and children.
