Suzanne M. Lachman

Suzanne Mariani Lachman, artist and retired public school special education director, has had a lifelong passion for painting. Working primarily under the guidance of artist Robert Merwin, Owego, NY, and alongside other artists within the Artistic Visions Studio, allows her to more fully explore the beauty and range of techniques with the acrylic and oil mediums. The many photographs she takes of her perennial gardens, trips to the beach or of her various walks and travels throughout the forests and countryside of upstate NY provide much inspiration for her paintings.


“It’s tremendously exciting and transformational to combine my love for a beautiful land or seascape with my desire to paint. The importance of painting with other artists cannot be understated. The knowledge and satisfaction gained from them collectively provide the stimulation and invaluable feedback necessary for one’s professional growth and learner as a painter.”


Suzanne, a graduate of Binghamton University, SUNY Cortland, and SUNY Geneseo is currently a member of the Artistic Visions Studio, Tioga Arts Council, and the Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier.
