Suzanne Lawson is a West Australian artist primarily working in oils. Her paintings reflect a love of portraiture and still life. Suzanne is inspired by the traditional techniques of layering paint over a toned ground surface, slowly building up transparent layers to create depth and form. Suzanne’s intentions when painting objects and figures is to convey atmosphere and feeling. There may be a duality between the artist’s intention and the observer’s interpretation of a piece, and for Suzanne that is the beauty of communicating through painting. Suzanne has been a finalist for a number of art awards locally and was recently selected as a finalist in the National Emerging Art Prize (NEAP) in 2022.
