Suzane Beaubrun

Suzane Beaubrun is an Oakland–based artist with roots in the East Coast. Her art education started at the Art Students League of New York where she worked as a teacher’s assistant to her mentor Martha Bloom. This adventure was followed up by a move to California, where she acquired a BFA in printmaking and painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. Somehow, this focus on working on canvas and paper morphed into a passion for creating sculptures and jewelry out of metal or found materials. Pieces may be created from scraps collected from the streets of the Bay Area and/or from precious metals and gemstones. Suzane uses a variety of processes to explore ideas in texture, space and nature. She loves losing herself in time consuming, meditative techniques such as crochet and intricate sawing, in the hopes of creating a sense of intimacy palpable in every creation.  Website LINK
