Through her bold, colorful paintings, Susan strives to inspire others to pursue their dreams and live their lives with passion.
Self identity is a vital part of understanding the power found in each of us. I believe dreams are compelling tools that can help us understand ourselves and shape our future. My art seeks to question the lines between dreams and real world existence, bordering on surrealism. I'm inspired by architecture and the skies; I'm a hopeless day dreamer at heart. I often work within a limited palette, which acts as a lens or filter through which you see the reality/dreamscape. As someone who rarely remembers my sleeping dreams, I am captivated by chasing the emotions of them and their contrast to reality.

Susan Verekar, a native of Portland, Oregon, was discovered at a very young age for having a significant musical talent. She has always been drawn to color, even hearing music as different shades and hues. After college, she explored other fields and while she achieved success, something was always missing. She moved to Tennessee and started painting, falling in love with the raw emotion and self expression of exploring color and angles.
Verekar works in her studio at the base of the Smoky Mountains. She lives in Knoxville, Tennessee with her doting husband and strong willed three year old daughter, two greyhounds, and two crazy cats. Her future plans include more travel to capture diverse inspiration and a VR exhibition of her work.
