Artist Bio

Suzie Seerey-Lester is an International Award-Winning Wildlife Artist. She has painted all over the world, including Europe, Africa, South America, and of course in the US. She is known for her depiction of old structures and birds. Recently she has been painting large animals like snow leopards, cougars, and wolves. Her unique style has things like petroglyphs hidden in rocks, baby cougars in the shadows, or unique items hidden for the viewer to discover. Suzie will only paint subjects that she has seen in the wild. Her paintings are in major museums all over the world, including The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art in Florida, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum, in Wisconsin, and the National Wildlife Museum in Jackson Hole, WY. Every painting has her and her husband’s initials (J+S) hidden somewhere.

Suzie was the first woman scuba diving Instructor Trainer in the US, during the early 1970s. She trained President Ford’s Secret Service Agents, FBI, and other law enforcement agents to perform “certain skills”, and later joined the CIA to train their operatives. She later worked for several large corporations like Xerox, Marriott, and DHL, before moving to Florida. She is licensed by the state of Florida to handle the endangered and threatened sea turtles that nest on local beaches. Suzie has been on turtle patrol since 2000. Some believe she is a real mermaid.
