Suzanne Anan

Artist Statement

American, Suzanne Anan is an Award Winning Contemporary Fine Artist. She studied in Italy and New York and exhibits her work internationally in cities from Paris to Tokyo. Anan creates figurative compositions with women as her primary subject. She works in all mediums, but prefers the unpredictability of painting, and the humility and vulnerability required in every stroke of oil onto canvas. Her work is inspired by poetry and literature. Her raw material comes from real life. Her images are gloriously human, revealing the evocative expressions of her thought-provoking subjects.

Suzanne studied abroad in Venice, Italy in an international program directed by Dr. Angiola Churchill and received her Master’s Degree of Art from New York University and a Bachelors of Fine Art from Kean University. Her artwork has been featured and sold in international exhibitions and in local galleries, donated to several non-profit organizations, and commissioned by large corporations such as Johnson and Johnson and other art institutions such as The Newark Museum. Her work has been added to the Ghost Ranch Museum Collection, New Mexico, the Bennett Collection of Women Painting Women, the Living Treasure Museum, Japan and the private collection of Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell in Sussex, England.

 

She is an Artist Member of Oil Painters of America, an elected Fellow Member of American Artists Professional League of NY, The Salmagundi Club of NY and American Women Artists.
