Richness of color and depth through texture bring our paintings to their greatest potential. Starting with good composition, we will use the full range of techniques on silk using free-flowing methods of dye application. Under-painted resist lines create harmonies. Thickened dye preserves brush strokes and can maintain a color in a field of its opposite. Explorations of both abstract and figurative work with encouragement and full technical support.


Pushing the boundaries of this ancient medium since 1984 and bringing a fine art sensibility to the interaction of dyes and resist on silk, SUZANNE PUNCH has opened up new possibilities of painterly expression.

Her work has been exhibited across the United States, in England and Japan in gallery, private and museum settings.

Suzanne has taught workshops in seven states across the country and in Canada. She is on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.

In 2009, Suzanne was given the lifetime designation of Master Silk Painter by SPIN (Silk Painters International)
