SPC. Ezra Suko

"Strive to be the best version of yourself."

Spc. Ezra Suko was raised in the Pacific Northwest. He began painting at age 14 when he asked his father (a former painter) for his old painting supplies. It was then that he discovered the joy of recreating the world through paint.
In March of 2008 Suko enlisted in the Army and served two deployments in Iraq. The idea of joining the military came after he lost his brother-in-law, a Soldier, Gabe DeRoo in Iraq. Gabe’s relationship to Suko was more than just a brother-in-law, he was an inspirational role model. Suko served from March of 2008 to October of 2011 with the 3d U.S. Cavalry from Fort Hood, Texas.

Suko now works full time as a fine artist producing work that has been accepted into both regional and national exhibitions, including the famed Arts for the Parks competition and Paint America. He is a current member of Oil Painters of America and was selected as an “Artist to Watch” by Southwest Art Magazine.
