Susan Sarback, a native of New York City, was surrounded by art from an early age. Wandering through museums and galleries since childhood, she developed an appreciation and respect for great art. She began her formal study and eventually received a Bachelors and an M.A. degree in Fine Art. After years of studying both abstract and representational art, she was still searching for a deeper understanding about light and color. She discovered Henry Hensche, an American Impressionist painter in the lineage of William Merrit Chase, and Claude Monet. An in-depth study with this master painter helped her uncover the deeper secrets about light and color that she was searching for. Her paintings are about a quality of light that captures the moment. Her subjects are mostly landscapes and focus on color, rhythm, harmony and atmosphere. She responds to subtle qualities and makes them apparent through suggestion rather than description revealing the essence of a time or place. International Artist Magazine named her one of the Master Painters of the world. Her paintings have been shown in galleries in New York City, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Sacramento, Seattle, and Santa Fe. Her works are also held in private collections throughout the world, including Mercy San Juan Medical Center, Sacramento, CA, the Medical Center of the University of California at Davis and the Kaiser Permanente Medical Group in Sacramento. Susan Sarback is the author of Capturing Radiant Light and Color in Oils and Soft Pastels, (North Light Books, 2007). She is the founder of The School of Light & Color in Fair Oaks, CA. Since 1986, she has lectured about color at over 100 art schools, museums, universities, and art associations. She has taught painting workshops and classes throughout the U.S. and Europe. Articles by or about her have appeared in The Artists Magazine, American Artist Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Magazine, and other publications. In April, 2002 PBS aired a feature segment about Susan Sarback and her paintings detailing her background, teaching techniques, and her School of Light and Color.
