Susan Greaves

Susan Greaves is a Louisiana native. She believes her earliest art influence was its graceful and classic architecture. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree from Louisiana State University in Interior Design, Susan worked in New Orleans and then moved with her family to Florida, Maine, Bermuda, Sicily, and Washington State. Meanwhile, she painted independently and took every art history course available to her. In 1976, Susan began to study under the instruction of William F. Reese. His unwavering dedication to the foundational concepts of painting and to integrity set the direction and standard for her subsequent work. After moving to Redding, CA in 1977, Susan studied with Sergei Bongart—his influence of Russian Impressionism is evident in her art. Susan’s paintings are noted for their light and color. She uses classical methods of careful observation and direct execution to portray subjects ranging from florals and still life to landscapes and figures. The memorable views of her adopted landscape and frequent travels provide constant visual stimulation. Learn more at www.susanfgreaves.com
