Suzanne Grace Pemberton is an artist based in New York City.  Her original career was in costume design for film and television in Los Angeles and eventually New York.  In 1986 she began work as a fine artist with further studies in painting and drawing at the Art Student's League, the National Academy School of Fine Arts in New York City and the Art Barge in Amagansett, NY.​  Pemberton has work in private collections in Germany, U.K., Nevis and the U.S.   Pemberton works out of her studio in Long Island City, NY. 



I have been exploring many visual interpretations of the sea in my career as an artist.  My series, "Waterlines" explored rising sea levels.  In my "Waterforce series, I used layers of watered-down acrylic paint in a gestural application attempting to capture the sea's energy. 

My current work is a journey above and below the seas.  They are dreamscapes encompassing ideas of atmosphere, rays of light and underwater reefs.  I ask viewers to think about their personal impact on the seas.  We are all stewards of our beautiful oceans.
