Suzy Moritz-Rawdin is a native Texas Artist, whose interest in art started at an early age, when she began to see the world in shapes of light and shadow.  Her impressionistic paintings have evolved by putting the dynamic, dramatic elements on canvas of those reflections, capturing the mood of the spirit.

Suzy is now well known for her lively pet portraits, architectural renderings and paintings, wall murals and representational landscapes, all of which can be found in many homes and businesses throughout the United States.  Suzy travels to New Mexico every summer for an extended stay and returns as often as she can throughout the year to soak up the romance and picturesque painting subjects.    She has mastered the art of painting the dazzling effects of New Mexico’s light and its corresponding shadows from the spectacular and inspiring landscapes of Georgia O’Keeffe Country to the magical town of Taos and its surrounding vistas and magnificent sunsets.  Her passion comes from touching, feeling and being in the midst of the art at the very moment of it’s conception.

Suzy studied art at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.   In 2005 after a long career in business, she took a life-changing detour and the smoldering desire to be a full time artist became a reality.   She can be found daily either at her home studio in the Hollywood Heights neighborhood in Dallas, or her beloved Studio Art and Soul, 1505 Beaumont Street, Dallas, Texas, located in the heart of The Cedars.  Suzy can be contacted at 214-906-6982 or suzymoritz@sbcglobal.net.  Suzy’s work can be viewed at suzymoritzfineart.com, her Blogs http://suzymoritz.blogspot.com or http://paintedpetsbysuzy.blogspot.com.
