Susan Cutler Tremaine has been painting for most of her life. 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 the late Barbara Rothenberg at the Silvermine Art School, New Canaan, 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, and the Silvermine Art Guild, in New Canaan, CT. 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 as well as a past Trustee of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.
Susan's paintings and assemblages are on canvas or rag paper. Materials are oil paint, often combining graphite, charcoal, oil stick, soft pastel, wax, and printers' ink. There is an importance placed on the use of archival materials.
Susan's architectural and design background show up, in a graphic sense, in her artwork and color theory is evident throughout.
