susan cutler tremaine, ABSTRACT ARTIST

Statement and Bio

Statement of intent


“I strive to make paintings that are intuitive, open to interpretation and above all, to express beauty through colour, line and form. While I am working, I am transported to places that combine my collective memories with imaginings of the ethereal world of ideas, structures and surrounding environments.”


Susan Cutler Tremaine has been painting and involved in the art milieu for many years. She worked in the field of Interior Design and Architecture in Canada and USA, most notably for Skidmore Owings and Merrill, Architects, New York, NY.

Since devoting herself exclusively to her art, she has shown in group and solo shows as well as placed her work in private collections both domestically and internationally.  Susan has done a residency at the Vermont Studio Center and has studied with Hugh O’Donnell, Professor of Art at Boston University as well as  Aleksandr Razin and Barbara Rothenberg at the Silvermine Art School, Norwalk, CT, where she worked with other modern abstract artists.

At present, she is a member of the Wilson Avenue Loft Artists Association, in Norwalk, a collective of Connecticut artists.  Susan has lived and worked in both New York, New England, USA and Ontario, Canada. She received a Diploma of Interior Design from Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada. Susan is a past Director of the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and chair of their Art Committee as well as a past Trustee of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.
