Artist Suzanne Buckland

As a visual artist currently living in Katy, Texas and working in Houston, Texas, I specialize in painting oil and acrylic on canvas, mixed mediums and drawing charcoal, pastel and oil pastel on paper, clay, photography and sculpture. I have been drawing and painting most of my life and studied art in The Netherlands over 30 years ago. I am a full-time professional curator, artist and instructor. My goal is to put a smile on the face of humanity, to preserve nature, the natural world, our environment, and create a greater appreciation for art, nature, freedom and artistic expression.

I've participated in many art events in Houston for the last almost twenty years including The Silos at Sawyer Yards, Serenity Studios, White Linen Night, WarHous Visual Studios, Hans Payan Gallery in Montrose, Art on the Avenue, Art for Arthritis, Sculptures by Design (CityCentre & Greenway), Art on the Plaza at CityCentre, First Saturday Arts Market, Brenham Art Festival, Winter Street Studios, Spring Street Studios, The Doshi House, Katy Art & Frame, Pearland Chamber of Commerce Gallery in Pearland, A Peaceful Pet, Watson Gallery, St. Luke's United Methodist Church Rotunda Gallery, JoMar Visions, Affair D'Art in Galveston, Primal Gallery in Dripping Springs and more. I'm the past President of the Houston based artists group, Artists Alive and Well, Inc. participating in and curating group exhibitions at The Continental Building (Downtown Houston), The Phoenix Tower (Greenway) and Houston City Hall among other area venues.

I formerly serve as Curator of Galerie Spectra, located in Memorial City Mall (2015-16), Houston, TX and the past President of Spectra Artists, Inc., a Texas Non-Profit Corporation, benefiting local artists, featuring all original artwork, installation art, trunk shows, workshops, classes, event space, meeting rooms, and artist interaction activities.

I have also served as curator at Greenhouse Gallery & Art Center, Sean Anthony Salons, Sky Salon, Eliana's and many more venues.

I'm currently a resident artist at The Silos at Sawyer Yards, Studio 122 and president of the Texas Non-profit Corporation, Houston Visual Artist Network serving artists from the greater Houston (Harris County) area. 

One of my passions is sharing my art with people through creative workshops. Since 2009 I have taught all types of art in stores, schools, and retirement communities including assisted living facilities.

I'm currently recovering from cancer and feeling stronger every day. 

I have also been featured on Channel 11 News and in the Houston Chronicle.

My perspective varies. Like most other artists I have experimented with styles, media, and size. I paint in several different styles including ancient hieroglyphs to more classic post expressionism. My subjects include my take on ancient art forms, floral and botanical, landscapes and seascapes including sunsets, animals, birds and more. I've recently developed a passion for mixed media collage and installations. I am also available for commissioned artwork.
