A recent transplant from the Midwest to Rockport, Massachusetts, Susan Lynn is finding new excitement in exploring the beautiful seascapes and shorelines that now surround her. The view out her back door now provides an endless array of subject matter, with an ever changing view of the sea. Susan comments, “I get up each morning, let my dog out to do his business, and stand at the back door looking at what new thing the ocean has for me today. It can range from glassy calm on a warm summer day, to wildly crashing waves from a Nor’easter blowing in at high tide, and everything in between. Watching the changing dynamics of the water has become a daily joy for me.”

A nationally recognized artist, Susan Lynn’s paintings have been described as poetic, lyrical, luminous and serene. Capturing a sense of light and atmosphere is a persistent theme of her work. Whether focusing on landscape or still-life, she believes that nature is a subject that speaks to the viewer in a visceral way, tapping into universal memories, emotions and the human connection to the world around us. Susan creates her work both in studio and “en plein air”, painting outdoors from life. In 2019, Susan opened her own gallery, the Susan Lynn Gallery & Studio, located at 79 Main Street in Rockport.
