About

Suzanne Starr lives in Connecticut, in the United States, and is a full time artist now, after retiring a few years ago as an art educator from public school teaching. She received the award for Outstanding Elementary Art Educator in 2003 from the Connecticut Art Educators Association. During her teaching career she taught Art for pre-K through grade 12. She also has taught adult art classes as well in various locations and a college level Drawing 1 class as an adjunct professor through UCONN.

Suzanne’s work focuses on narratives which reflect on emotions, interactions, our relation to each other and to the world we live in. Primarily working in black and white, Suzanne enjoys the tactile and textural capabilities of graphite and charcoal. In the simplicity of these materials, much power is held.

Suzanne is a prize winning artist who has shown in local, state, regional and National Art Exhibitions. Her works are owned by collectors in Connecticut and New York.

When not actively creating, she is enjoying her life with her husband, her daughters and her two incredible grandchildren.
