Born and educated in the U.S.; lives and works in Paris, France.
Susan Cantrick is an emerging painter who came to the visual arts by way of music (B.A., Bennington College, M.M., Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University). In 1997, due to a chronic overuse injury, she left her career as a violinist to pursue intensive visual arts studies as the extension of an already deeply ingrained creative practice. During these formative years she had her first solo exhibition in Paris, and in 2002 she established her independent studio practice there. She was granted a winter residency at the Vermont Studio Center in 2004 and in 2007 exhibited again solo in Paris. Since then she has shown regularly in Parisian group exhibitions, notably the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles for the past three years.
Susan Cantrick's work has been acquired by private collectors in France, the U.S., and Japan. She anticipates a solo exhibition of painting and mixed media work in Boston in March 2012.
