Peoria, IL 61615

SPEAKER:  Suzette Boulais, Arts Partners

Come get motivated as Suzette brings us a delightful, uplifting presentation.

BIO: Since 2003, Suzette has served as Executive Director of ArtsPartners of Central Illinois, Inc., a city-funded, not-for-profit organization that promotes the arts as vitally important to the Central Illinois community's cultural and economic development.

As an artist Suzette enjoys hand-painting and designing her own notecard line, HeartART, which is carried by several floral shops and art galleries in Peoria, Illinois.

Regarding her larger acrylic paintings, Suzette’s work is inspired by 20th century artist Mark Rothko, whose expressionist abstractions were deeply personal statements that sought to provide a transcendental experience; Rothko described his work as the "simple expression of complex thought."

Suzette’s larger paintings are on display at several Peoria area institutions and businesses, including the historic Cornerstone Building in downtown Peoria, Studios on Sheridan Gallery and at Emerson Creek Pottery in Peoria Heights.
