Suzanne is a much-loved Iowa artist who enjoys painting detailed scenes of life around her as well as iconic landscapes of Iowa.  She comments, "special events and happy occasions with people we love are important images that I like to document in paint."  To Aunan, "the good days are here, now and today.  Today we are making precious memories."  Her work has been purchased by collectors world wide.

Her work can be purchased at Iowa Artisans Gallery downtown Iowa City, and on her website.

About Amana Winter: The seven villages of the Amana Colonies were established in eastern Iowa beginning in 1855.  The church was the most important building for this Christian communal group.  Today the Amana Church Society continues with worship services offered in German and English in Middle Amana and Amana.  The seven churches can still be found today: Amana, West Amana, South Amana, East Amana, Homestead, High Amana, and Middle Amana.  The name "Amana" comes from the Bible, the Song of Solomon 4:8.  It means "remain true" or "believe faithfully."
