Get To Know Susan Tuckerman
Susan Tuckerman is a lifelong artist and equestrian, originally from Westport, Massachusetts. She cultivated an early sense of her artistic style by attending the University of Massachusetts, where she received her BFA in Printmaking & Painting. She founded Sunswick Pottery with designs that focused on Baroque hand painted & hand built platters & bowls. That business thrived for 20 years as Susan toured the US, attending major art shows as well as having her works featured in galleries and museums worldwide.
Susan is also a passionate and accomplished equestrian who has ridden & bred top show jumpers & event horses throughout her life. Her home is the world renowned Chesterland Farm in Unionville, Pennsylvania, where she and multiple olympic medalist Bruce Davidson breed and train international calibre sport horses. Together they continue to produce some of the top sport horses in the country as well as operate a thriving training and competition barn.
A riding accident in 2008 left Susan partially paralyzed and required she refocus her riding and artistic talents, but this did not deter her for long! She now produces one of a kind digital art for private clients as well as limited edition prints that are inspired by her natural surroundings.
Peek Into A Creative Mind
“The computer has enabled me to combine both painting and photography. This was a very important discovery for me. I could work in two of my favorite mediums.
"Now I manipulate photographs so that they resemble oil or pastel paintings or drawings. It takes the reality of the precise rendering of the actual photograph into a more painterly representation. As I work, the image evolves through multiple generations of ink application.
"The result is in fact a print, very similar to a lithograph or a screen print. All my work is made in limited editions of 10."
“The horse is my favorite animal, the one that I feel that I understand and that I love the most. Horses have brought me more excitement, sorrow and joy than any other animal. There is a connection that I have with horses that has become intrinsic to my art.”
