Summary Bio
Suzette Marie Martin’s early career included residency at a juried artists’ housing community, exhibiting with artists of the New York city Neo-Expressionist movement of the late 1980s. She returned to studio practice in 2017, following an extended hiatus supporting her family as a single mother, through teaching in the arts and digital media illustration.
Suzette's drawings are in the collection of the Paterson Museum. Awards include a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Fellowship at Fine Arts Work Center, a Teacher Institute Fellowship at the National Gallery of Art, residency at Ora Lerman Charitable Trust Soaring Gardens Artist Retreat, and Resident Artist at the Edward Hopper House Museum. Her “Naiads of the New World” paintings were featured in Orion Magazine Autumn 2019.
