Professional artist Susan Bartlett Rice earned her BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Vermont, followed by further studies at the California College of Arts and Crafts and the Rhode Island School of Design. Her oil paintings are autobiographical and reflect the contrasts, challenges and comforts of living year-round on the Maine coast.
Rice’s modern work reflects a time almost gone by. Through her paintings of 20th century architecture, the working waterfront and family farming, she colorfully represents long-standing traditions in contemporary times. Her paintings have been exhibited and collected nationally.
