Suzann Beck holds a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Moorhead State University (Moorhead MN) and studied portraiture with atelier-trained painter Judith Anthony (Plymouth, MN) and classical glazing technique portraiture with Jeffery Hurinenko (St. Paul, MN). Suzann serves as the Minnesota Ambassador for the Portrait Society of America, and teaches portrait painting and drawing classes in her Northeast Minneapolis studio and the Paramount Center for the Visual Arts (St. Cloud, MN). Suzann has the unique ability to capture the essence and spirit of a subject and combine it with masterful likeness. Her inspiration and passion comes from the classical old masters, and she is particularly influenced by the Russian painters of the 19th century. Intrigued and motivated by the depth and craft of masterworks hundreds of years old, Suzann works to understand classical methods and disciplines and leverage them with contemporary practices and sensibilities to create representational realism.
