About Suzanne Barton:
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Suzanne’s affinity for water and childhood passion for photography spawned her Underwater Fine Art Series. Although self-taught, Suzanne’s work drew the attention of renowned portrait photographer Willie L. Hill, who mentored her in the art and became her teacher, friend, critic, and remains steadfast supporter.
Suzanne’s first foray into the depth and serenity of the underwater world is showcased in Suzanne’s elegant, ethereal, Tiny Dancer Underwater Art Series.
In August of 2015, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines commissioned two of Suzanne’s Underwater Fine Art pieces for their newest Oasis Class ship, Harmony of the Seas. The pieces are a permanent part of the on board International Art Collection, seen in over 250 ports of call worldwide.
An underwater session can last for hours and are followed by more hours spent in careful editing. Only the perfect image will do. Suzanne lets her imagination follow the energy in the work and embellishes the image with various additional artwork to create and enhance.
To date, Suzanne’s underwater art is featured in four galleries (Florida, South Carolina, and Ohio), has graced 60 juried exhibitions, fifteen separate publications, and garnered a Director’s Choice Award (New York), Photographer of the Year, and People’s Choice Award (Art Comes Alive-Cincinnati Ohio) and first and second place in the Island City Juried Exhibitions (Fort Lauderdale).
Suzanne’s newest creative venture, Mythical Maidens, is an attempt to honor the Old Masters, under the surface. She wants to join them to the modern world through multimedia backgrounds with alcohol inks and acrylics created on canvas.
Suzanne envisions her artwork as an integral part in healing centers and used for charitable causes, such as bringing fresh drinking water to areas in need and advancing awareness to the importance of protecting this vital, life giving resource.
She shares her time and talents with many charities. The fight against cancer, along with children, animal and family charities are near and dear to my heart. She currently sits on the board of Glam-a-thon (raising funds for women in Broward County affected by breast cancer) and Art’s United.
