Suzanne Shortt

Suzanne Shortt has been a professional artist and educator for over thirty years. After graduating with degrees in both Fine Art and Education from Queen’s University, she has lived and worked as an artist all over the world. Starting as a volunteer in Ghana, she has been inspired by vibrant scenes in Africa, Asia and Europe. Her work in oils draws on the cultural and aesthetic diversity of this international life. Colour is her passion. Flat areas of bold colour and negative space charge the narrative of the canvases in her exhibitions. Woven through the work is an optimistic, life-affirming spirit. Suzanne has taught art in different contexts alongside her studio work. She studied Animation at Sheridan College and has also been involved with graphic design and branding projects.

She moved to Lunenburg in the summer of 2023. Working alongside her husband, this year Suzanne is beginning a new art, design and learning business – Big Blue House Studio.
