Suzanne MacRury was born in Kelowna BC in 1970. Her initial focus was drawing but it wasn’t long before she moved on to her preferred medium of paint. In 1988, Suzanne attended the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver where she studied through to 1990. During the 1990’s, Suzanne’s work was dominated predominantly with body prints, reflecting her interest in human and animal anatomy. Her fascination with osteology and entomology led her to start her own elaborate collection of bones and insects from around the world which is also reflected in her work during this period.
Since 2000 her style has moved towards abstract painting, pulling from both the natural and urban environment. In 2004 she moved to Toronto and her work became more free form abstract. She started working with resin in 2008 and in late 2009 she began renting and selling her art through the Art Gallery of Ontario. In 2011 she participated in Canadian Culture Days and hosted a resin demonstration. Her work has been published in Style at Home Canada, Metro, The Globe and Mail and featured on a City TV Cityline segment. She is currently represented by L’Espace Contemporain Gallery in Montreal and has work available through the Sales and Art Rental of the Art Gallery of Ontario and also with Franc Gallery in Vancouver. She has recently relocated back to the Westcoast and lives in Squamish, B.C.
