Suzan Visser-Offereins has been painting portraits for over 30 years. She started painting portraits in Pastels of elderly people in a home and she says: “It was amazing how people opened up and told the story of who they were. Their faces lightened up when telling about their work and lives, their family, what they have loved so much. To me it is always a challenge and an honour to try to capture the being of that person”. She painted many children’s portraits, portraits of Directors, people with handicaps, Ballet dancers, Actors, but also she was honoured with Royal Commissions, like the Prince and Crown Prince of Kuwait, The Dutch Royal Family and further Ambassador’s portraits from all over the world.
