PSNH SCM: Susanne Larkham, NHPSA
My eye-candy compositions echo my high ideals--I see the world as a symphony of movement, music & vibrant color. This particular pursuit of happiness pairs perfectly with the intense pigment in soft pastels imbuing a surreal idealism to my contemporary representational paintings.
Having started avidly painting with pastels in 2018, Susanne Larkham is already an award-winning pastel artist and a juried member of the Pastel Society of America, the North Shore Arts Association & the NH Art Association. She is self-taught in the medium and uses pastels to express her awe of nature’s beauty in a colorist and idealized reality.
No stranger to the arts, Larkham earned a BS in Secondary Art & Math Education from Taylor University in Upland, IN. A transplanted Midwesterner, she has called New Hampshire home since 1993. Since 2013, Larkham has volunteered over 700 hours as docent/art educator at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH. She is a member of a number of local art associations including the Pastel Society of NH and serves on the Board of Directors as their webmaster. A twenty-five-year veteran of the fitness industry, she is owner and founder of Bellami Fitness in Manchester, NH. She teaches multiple class formats including one she’s currently developing. Her fitness boutique doubles as the home of her mini gallery: On a Lark Fine Art.
