"I really enjoyed attending Barbara’s art class in February this year (2012). Her warm manner and gentle encouragement made the day a joy from beginning to end. I loved the supportive environment she created. The day has inspired me to continue painting at home and now I can’t wait to do another class!"

Sue Agnew



"I call her a brush with Fame… she appreciates every student's work for its individuality and has a gold mine of Tips’n Techniques."



"A joy from beginning to the end."



"Fabulous… shared time and skills evenly amongst us all."



“We commissioned Barb Suttie for a couple of works for the simple reason that Barb feels the essence of a scene and then paints from somewhere deep inside herself. The end result is a picture that although “still” is beautiful and full of life.”

Graham & Helen Dietrich



 "I have been a student of Barbara Suttie's for the last year.  In that time I have come to know and learn from an incredible artist.  The tonal contrast in her paintings along with her gifted use of light and lingering mist is nothing short of breathtaking.  Barbara's vibrant use of colour is what first drew me to her work; she immerses herself in every painting, carefully attending to the detail of every mark on canvas from the planning stage to the final signature"
