SUSAN CRILE is a painter and printmaker of considerable renown. Her work — ranging from the political and incensed to the lyrical — has been exhibited internationally and is in the collections of such prominent institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum and, in Washington, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

She is also a Hunter College tenured professor of studio art.

Despite having the kind of success so many artists dream about, Crile has not made a fortune. But she loves her two “jobs” and works them hard. Like many of her colleagues, she views her teaching as her steady employment and her art as her “business.”
