Suzanne Halstead, Illustration


"The process of creating is life at its fullest…
seining the soul to bring vision into being."

A reason for art making seems to be lost – that is – netting the soul and bringing our images into being. My call as an artist is to pursue those images for myself and, as an educator, to encourage, enable and empower others to find and explore their creative self.

Suzanne Halstead received a BFA in Studio Arts and Art Education with a concentration in printmaking and photography from Syracuse University, NY. She teaches art in studios, galleries and museums.

Halstead works extensively in cultural, educational and museum environments as an educator, exhibits and program developer and arts director. She received her MA in Education from Concordia University, IL. Special emphasis was on the research and development of play and creativity curriculums, exhibition spaces, hands on components and interactive experiences for informal learning environments.

Halstead is the illustrator and with Wanda Schwandt the co-author of Drawing Nearer: Devotional Workbook of Creative Prayer where 48 of her pastel images are represented in full color. She is also the author of two books in the ACA Grab-and-Go Activities series: Teaching Children About God Through Creative Art & Teaching Children About God Through Creative Art on Nature Hikes. Halstead has also contributed to three New Earth camp curriculums in the creative arts and youth sections.

Halstead develops themed programs and educational activities for all ages. She also leads presentations, workshops, and retreats that focus on the visual arts, creativity and spirituality in a variety of settings including her home studio in Berea, OH.
