About the Artist


Artist Suzanne Wiggin’s roots are planted deep in the swamps of Louisiana. She moved to New Mexico as a young woman and fell in love with the light and the landscape. Her early work focuses on the beauty of the Southwest and has expanded considerably over the years.

Recently, Suzanne has added printmaking to her repertoire of work. Through monotypes and etchings, she has taken her work to a new level. She has explored beyond landscape into several subjects, such as leaf crowns and flower buds.

Suzanne makes her home in a valley near the quaint, art-centric town of Taos. Much of her work is landscapes with the stunning light the area offers. A wealth of colors come in every shade throughout the seasons, giving her an endless variety of scenes to work from. The trees, the leaves, the mountains, the waterways... All have been captured in their timeless beauty through the movements of her brush.
