American painter, Suzanne Caporael, studied at the Otis Art Institute completing both her BFA and MFA. Between 1984-1986 she received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and held her first major exhibition at the Newport Harbor Art Museum and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
