If a photograph says a thousand words, a hand-painted piece either for yourself or a gift can speak volumes. The Custom Palette strives to be exactly that…custom. If an idea speaks to you, I can help bring it to life. Paintings can preserve a memory, may be shared with friends and family, and make unique gifts.
I’m Suzanne Regan, owner of The Custom Palette in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. My love for creating images has been with me for as long as I can remember. I was an art major in college and spent a number of years in the wall covering design business. Now that our family has grown I feel I can get back to what I love doing most.
Most of my work is done with acrylics on canvas, but not exclusively. I also paint on paper, wood, furniture and walls. Almost any surface can become a canvas. I am happy to discuss any idea you may have and do my best to help create a piece for you.
I discover my own inspiration in so many different places. Nature frequently is a wonderful resource and sparks ideas. Much of my work is commission based; however, I also enjoy composing images of my own. Some of my favorite subjects are the painting of people's animals and pets as I understand what an important part of a family they can be.
