Susan Grisell: Close to Home
Oil Paintings & Pastels

Susan Grisell, a life-long Gaylordsville resident, began studying with her neighbor, impressionist master Bernard Lennon in 1964. She continued to paint with him until his death in 1992 and still works in his studio. She considers her work to be an exploration of the relationship of man to nature; a visual diary in which each piece represents a specific place and time as perceived by the artist. She works primarily, though not exclusively, on location. Her work is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, and Australia. To learn more and see her work, visit her website at
