About MeHi, I'm a portrait painter and am always looking for new models in the Minneapolis area to sit for me or my portrait workshops. I am interested in models of all ages, gender, and ethnicities. Please feel free to message me through Model Mayhem if you're interested.
I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Moorhead State University, Moorhead MN, and presently reside in Minneapolis, MN. I've studied portraiture with an atelier-trained painter and have also studied Flemish-technique classical portraiture — both with artists in the Twin Cities area. I take my inspiration and passion from the classical old masters, and am particularly influenced by the Russian classical painters of the 19th century. I strive to capture the character, life, and spirit of my subjects, and consider a painting a success when the viewer begins to engage with the subject.
I specialize in portraiture, but also paint landscape en plein air, and still life. I have a studio in Northeast Minneapolis where I paint and teach portraiture classes and workshop intensives.

"Suzann is just one of a kind! Her ability to capture the likeness of her subject is simply incredible. I was almost frightened at how well she captured my soul in the oil portrait painting she did of me. I sat for her for a couple of sessions and during a difficult time - my g...randfather, whom I grew up with, was in the hospital at the time and out of state, and I was grieving heavily due to being unable to visit him and being very worried about him, and she captured this grief shockingly well. She showed me a glimpse of it in the process and I had to refocus so as to appear more contemplative, as there was too much sadness coming across initially. The final painting is simply stunning and I have to say that working with her remains one of my all-time favorite modeling experiences, ever. I would gladly work with her again, and again, and again. I highly, highly recommend working with her if you ever have the chance. No regrets, only gratitude on my end! She is a true artist!" more less
