Suzanne Ouellette

Suzanne Ouellette is a Professor Emeritus at The Graduate School of The City University of New York where she taught psychology, social science, and liberal studies. She is now a full time painter although she continues to work with Ph.D. Students and research colleagues and do scholarly writing.

"Using oil paint and pencils, I tell stories about the beauty, simplicity, and complexity of what I see in the world. I want each of my paintings gently to stop you in your tracks. I want you to pause and through my work engage with another person's image, a silver bowl, a tree, or some other piece of the world. I intend to provoke both your curiosity and your concern. Although I want you to find what you are looking at beautiful, I also want you to ask and care about what just happened and what might come next for the person, place, or object in front of you."

Suzanne also writes about art, travel, and life on her blog at
