About the Artist

Suzanna Leigh (Vashon) paints with dyes on silk. Her background is in watercolor and printmaking. She has exhibited with Quartermaster Press at the Seattle Convention Center, and in various local group and solo shows throughout the Puget Sound area. Exposure to Phan Nguyen Barker’s paintings on silk in 2001 and a month in the historic silk producing area of China inspired her to use dyes on silk to express both the beauty of nature and stories of the soul.
