As the daughter of a professional artist, Susanne has been making art all her life. She grew up in rural Massachusetts and later moved to Washington, D.C. In Boston, she received her formal training at the Art Institute, and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts. After the move to Washington, D.C., she studied at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. However, the greatest influence on her painting style developed from her long friendship and mentoring with the prominent wildlife and landscape painter, Bill Freeman, whom she met when she moved to Arizona early in her career.
Ms. Nyberg is well known for her realistic oil and palette knife plein air landscape paintings. She and her husband, Bob, have lived most of their lives in the scenic Arizona desert. She loves to paint the dramatic desert light on the mountains at sunrise and sunset. Over the last thirty years she’s had numerous shows of her landscape paintings in several prestigious Arizona and national galleries. Her landscapes are displayed in corporate and private collections worldwide.
