Susan Brabeau is an American nostalgic painter of people interacting with people
What strikes the viewer first about a Susan Brabeau canvas is her uncanny talent for capturing people; their moods, their idiosyncrasies, their body language.
The artist enables us to eavesdrop on series of private moments telling a story; tales that tug at the heart, fire the imagination and delight the scenes. Also throughout her work we find love for earlier simpler times.
Susan has chosen by Artist's Magazine, out of 10,000 contestants, to be in the top per cent of Portrait Painters.
She keeps busy with her portraiture work, including heads of the state capitol in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she resides.
She also uniquely photographs families and a paints them in fun scenario and place of their choice. Susan also works with Disney, Orion Pictures, ABC, NBC and Warner Brothers on various projects.
