|Born in Newark, New Jersey, Susanne Longo wanted to be an artist since kindergarten, when her first painting "MY HOUSE WITH A RAINBOW AND A DOG" was shown at a county art exhibit. Susanne went on to major in art at Kenyon College where she concentrated in painting, drawing, photography and welding. After graduating, she moved to New York City where she managed an art gallery in Soho, quit in disgust then spent 6 months roaming the city with a sketchbook. Ever since, her portraits have explored the idea that despite our desires to feel wanted, fulfilled and loved by others, we live in a state of collective solitude.||
