Writer & Artist: Suzette McIntyre

Post by NCW Visual Designer: April Moore

The Northern Colorado Writers exists in order to encourage and support writers. Fortunately, we’re also able to support local artists by displaying their work on the walls of the studio. Every two months, the studio features the work of a different local artist and each time, the studio is transformed into a unique art gallery. And when the artist is also an NCW member—that’s even better!

For the months of May and June, the artwork and photography of NCW member, Suzette McIntyre will be on display. Suzette’s unique and inspiring work is the result of a multi-step process that very few (if any) other artists do. Suzette starts by taking a photograph of the subject, scans it into a program in her computer to create a painted effect, then she adds texture on top of the actual piece.

For example, on “Red Barn at Sunrise” she incorporated the actual landscape into the painting by adding pieces of grass from the location of the barn. Suzette’s background in sculpture, oil painting, and photography has enabled her to create these unique and one-of-a-kind giclee canvases that have earned her numerous awards and trophies, including a showing at the Epcot Center and the Visual Excellence award from Certified Professional Photographers.

Support a fellow NCW member and come by the studio to view Suzette’s unique and inspirational artwork. You can also contact her if you are interested in having Suzette create a special, one-of-a-kind piece for you. You can see more of Suzette’s work on her website, Photography by Suzette ( http://photographybysuzette )

I love that barn picture because it reminds me of the one we had when I was a kid. You do beautiful work, Suzette. I'm in the studio right now, looking at more of your work.
