Biography from Chroma Gallery:
Susan Sarback, a native of New York City, began her formal art studies at an early age, culminating in Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Fine Art.  After years of studying both abstract and representational art, she discovered painter Henry Hensche.  From Hensche, she began to uncover the deep secrets of light and color that had been her quest.

Sarback’s paintings are always about the quality of light.  Her subjects range from rivers, ponds, and marshes to glass bottles and persimmons.

Editors of International Artist Magazine named her one of the Master Painters of the world.  She is the author of Capturing Radiant Color in Oils (Northlight Books, 1994) and is the founder of the School of Light & Color.
