An Iowan since 1972, Suzanne B. Aunan is a self-taught artist who has enjoyed painting as far back as she can remember.  She was born in New York City and grew up on a dairy farm in upstate New York.  Suzanne attended the University of Iowa, majoring in Medical Technology, and later graduated from the Physician Assistant Program.  She worked as a P.A. at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, then as a full-time mother of four.  Now with all four children in school, she is enjoying a career as an artist.

Suzanne paints detailed compositions using acrylic, gouache, and watercolors, sometimes adding pencil or ink pen. Her work has been purchased by collectors world-wide.

Suzanne is a self-taught and much loved Iowa artist who enjoys painting detailed scenes of life around her as well as iconic landscapes of Iowa. She comments, "special events and happy occasions with people we love are important images that I like to document in paint." To Aunan, "'the good days' are here, now and today. Today we are making precious memories."
