Contemporary Artist & Romantic Impressionist Painter
Not only is Suzanne Sommer one of Australia's top selling artists, for the last ten years her paintings have been amongst the most recognisable in select galleries and in east coast art exhibitions. A prolific painter, Suzanne's popularity is shared by the art fraternity and, more importantly, by the buying public.
Working in acrylic, oil and pastel, Suzanne is best known for beautiful figurative work and for romantic scenes of Australian country cottages. There is no other artist who combines these subjects with such success as does Suzanne Sommer and, for this reason, Suzanne has carved out her own, very characteristic and recognisable style. Complimenting these signature paintings are many others which include Floral and Still Life, Traditional Landscape and Seascape, Cameo paintings and Miniatures to name but a few.
Not content to rest, in 2004 Suzanne released her newest work which she describes as her 'contemporary style' - this has been received with great enthusiasm by a different group of art buyers including inner city consultant decorators, and collectors of modern art.
To achieve a high profile, and to successfully woo so many buyers and collectors, an artist has to be a prolific painter of high quality artworks that appeal to a wide audience. This Suzanne has done for more than ten years with outstanding results. However, to be considered a successful artist, it is equally important to be recognised by your peers. For Suzanne, this is clearly demonstrated by her more than one hundred awards, including 26 first prizes. In a less formal way, Suzanne has received wide recognition from the broader art community through gallery directors and art show convenors who have sold Suzanne's paintings to more than a dozen countries and to all Australian states.
Therefore, it is not surprising to learn that Suzanne Sommer's paintings are highly collectable.
