About Sternau
Susan Sternau is a landscape painter living and working in Sausalito, California. A native of New York City, she is a Barnard Graduate and holds a degree in Art History from Hunter. She also studied at the Art Students League and School of Visual Arts. After moving to San Francisco in 1995, Susan focused on painting Bay Area landscapes and architectural scenes, including many commissions of residents’ homes and gardens. She is fluent with both oils and watercolors and has exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, Florida and the Bay Area, where she shows regularly. A full-time artist since 1990, her work is in many private collections. Susan has also published book illustrations and is the author of Matisse, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Museums. Susan teaches art to private students and groups – her most famous students were Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.
Artist Statement

Susan Sternau's mission as an artist is to bring joy to others through the color and emotional connection of her images. She believes the human spirit requires care and feeding, and that art provides an essential part of that nourishment. Therefore she strives to create nourishing paintings. Her painting has been influenced by Monet, Matisse, and Thiebaud, among others. She finds inspiration in their emotional use of color, in their ability to evoke a sense of place and transport the viewer there. Susan’s oil paintings combine brush work and palette knife, which she uses to build up a textured paint surface. Her watercolors are light-filled scenes which highlight the natural brightness of the paper and transparency of the colors to create seductive images.
