SUZANNE MORENO BERKE
My artistic passions extend to all areas of creative expression where brilliant color, texture, and image can contribute. Dia de Los Muertos, (The Day of the Dead) and other cultural experiences have influenced my art and expression. I love to add texture, surprise and life to canvas.
As a Political Artist, it’s critical that my art reflect my values. My passion is working for a world that is socially just and reflects our Democratic ideals. By projecting that ideal in my artwork, my goal is to evoke a call to act from the viewer.
Family is an essential element that grounds my art. My 101- year – old Grandmother inspired me to see life always as a glass half full with endless possibility. My family – two sons, daughter-in-law, a new granddaughter, and an extensive network of friends – forms a community of creativity that fuels my artistic process.
I studied art at Long Beach State University before moving to Northern California in 1983. I work out of my studio in Marin County where my husband Michael, is my number one supporter and art critic. PEACE
