Heidi Sussman is photographer, painter and mixed media artist from New Jersey. She maintains a visual art studio practice in an historic industrial complex thirty minutes outside of New York City. A graduate of Emerson College in Boston, she continued post graduate studies towards an MFA at the Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her work is often photo-based as she combines natural and digital art media with her photographs. As a teaching artist who actively exhibits her work, she brings years of experience to her students, offering instruction in photography techniques and mixed media processes. Whether teaching at one day or multi-day workshops, holding classes in local arts centers, or working as a mentor to individuals in her studio, she offers her students detailed and informative instruction in a friendly and supportive manner.
