Hi everyone… my friend Jim Hawks and I are finally getting toSuzanne Tornquist and her wet dog Beulah building the long promised web site. Can you believe it? The good thing is this… He (Jim) has infinite patience to show me how to use it. Now I can hear people gnashing their teeth but it is true… Julie, this may be the start of a blog??? NO!! I said NEVER… but here I am… all I can say is OY VEY! So here we go….


Suzanne Tornquist is nationally known for fine art and illustration. At the present time she has developed five recognizably different styles which are:

People: Reflecting the feelings of culture and lifestyle throughout the world.

Animals and fish: Visual narration of their personality, curiosity and dignity.

modernistic expression: Portrayal of intense color and dramatic



Humor: Whimsical portrayal of temperament in ludicrous or incongruous



Spirituality: Envisioned transcendental and ecclesiastical emotions

impossible to articulate.

When Suzanne is not painting or enjoying the company of her husband, Michael, she can be found playing with her “exceptionally brilliant” grandchildren, Sarah, Zoe and Quintin and her very big black dog, Beautiful Beulah, the bouncy bounding Bouvier des Flanders.
