About Bobbie

"I look at the world around me as subject matter for paintings, and am grateful for my phone camera to capture a scene or a moment in time. I also love painting en plein air and the challenge of recreating what is a fleeting moment of light and shadow.

I have always been drawn to creating art. I have dabbled in many different mediums including sculpture, ceramics, quiltmaking, jewelry making, Japanese doll making, watercolor, acrylic, pastel and oil. Now my focus is on pastel and oil and I often enjoy painting the same subject in each medium to see the different effects they make."

Bobbie Suratt received her BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University and has also studied at the Art Students League in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Silvermine School of Art in CT, the Camden School of Art in London, CCAE in Cambridge, MA, and in the studios of Eli Cedrone and Jeanne Rosier Smith.
