“This is the Sea, My baby” by Susan Burke
Susan’s life is certainly an inspiration as we follow her journey as a Survivor of the Holocaust (quite a miracle!), to her arriving in the United States. Susan lived and studied in Moscow, Russia where she attained her Master’s degree in Ceramic Art. She came to the U.S. from Budapest, Hungary in the mid-1980’s.
“Cornered” by Susan Burke
After coming to the U.S. she studied at F.I.T. in New York City and went into the field of high-end production pattern-making in the garment business. Her husband, Bruce, tells us, ” I couldn’t believe the clothing she produced – some of which she showed me in the windows at Bergdorf Goodman”. Eager to accomplish more, Susan then completed her certificate of graduation from the Sheffield School of Interior Design in 2010. Interior decorating is one of her inherent talents!
“Backyard Sunset” by Susan Burke
Susan is mostly self-taught, using oils as her medium for painting. She is constantly studying and often takes individualized classes from other professional artists. Her experience with painting began when she thought perhaps she could paint their granddaughter as a special birthday gift for their daughter-in-law in Budapest, Hungary. She tells The Rickie Report, “My paintings are my form of communication. I am not attempting to reproduce nature; but I am interpreting the emotions that the subject spur in me”.
“Passion” by Susan Burke
An emerging artist, Susan has since produced many paintings and began entering art contests and showing her work in exhibits. Susan was featured in an article in the Hernando Star Magazine last year. The editor interviewed and included Susan as a focus for “exceptional talent living in the county”.
