"Suzanne Scheuer was born in San Jose, California on February 11, 1898. She moved to San Francisco, California in 1918.
Scheuer studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts as a fine arts major, and then later went back and got a teacher's credential. Around 10 years later she went back to school to study mural painting with Ray Boynton at California School of Fine Arts (now called the San Francisco Art Institute or SFAI).
Scheuer taught art for three years in Los Banos and Salinas public schools. After her time teaching, she toured Europe extensively, where she gained an appreciation for murals."
