Susan Grisell, a life-long Gaylordsville resident, began studying with her neighbor, impressionist master Bernard Lennon in 1964. She continued to paint with him until his death in 1992 and still works in his studio. She considers her work to be an exploration of the relationship of man to nature; a visual diary in which each piece represents a specific place and time as perceived by the artist. She works primarily, though not exclusively, on location.

Susan exhibits mainly in outdoor shows. Among her awards are Best in Show in Mystic and New Milford, First Prize in Oils in Mystic, New Milford and the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit in New York; First Prize in Watercolor in Newport and an Honorable Mention in the Connecticut Pastel Society’s Invitational Show. 

She has demonstrated and lectured at several schools, including the North Shore Art League of Long Island,
and at the Kent Memorial Library and New Milford Historical Society. She has also demonstrated on videotape for the benefit of students and others interested in a straight forward approach to painting landscapes, still lifes and figures.

Her work is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia. See more of her work on her website at susangrisell.com.
