Artist Biography

Susan Bull Riley

Painter of Vermont's Natural World

"To paraphrase Anais Nin’s words " paint to heighten my own awareness of life. I paint to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection. I paint… to render all of it eternal and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. I paint to be able to transcend my life, to reach beyond it.” I don’t seek out my subject matter; it comes to me. Relentlessly. From the exquisite delicacy of a feather to a landscape that leads the eye miles across Vermont’s hills, our world is breathtaking. My academic training was entirely in music performance and education rather than art, but drawing and painting became my primary professional life 25 years ago and I have never looked back." ~ Susan

Susan Bull Riley has exhibited at the New York State Museum’s Biennial exhibit “Focus on Nature” which draws on an international pool of artists; the Montshire Museum in Norwich, VT; the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation; The Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology; eight oil paintings were selected for the 2008 Breeding Birds of New York Atlas, which is marketed in fine art as well as natural history circles.

Bull Riley’s paintings have received honors in regional, national, and international galleries and institutions. They have been sought by organizations such as The New York State Museum, The National Science Foundation, the Vermont Community Foundation, the American Chestnut Foundation, the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, and many local land trusts.
