She is the recipient of over 30 awards and has been featured in many national publications. These publications include Splash 6, The Artist's Magazine, American Artist, Watercolor Magic, Watercolor Basics, and Watercolor Artist's.

Suzanna has become nationally known for her informative watercolor portrait workshops.
