Suzie B. Exhibitions, Publications & Installations

Suzie Biehler has had a camera in hand since her early teens. After college, she worked as a photojournalist for a weekly newspaper in Texas. She later came west, where she established and ran her own marketing and public relations firm in San Francisco for 30 years. 
Biehler has always been drawn to bodies of water. Through imagery and the conscious use of light, she makes visible what occurs with great subtlety in the environment—seeking out an essential force: a wash of water over pebbles, a wisp of sand stretching out to the sea, still moments occurring in the everyday. Her work reminds viewers to pause, reflect more deeply and re-engage.
Biehler’s work has been exhibited in galleries, and published in books and magazines. She lives and works in Northern California.
