Suzanne Thienpont was born in Sint-Maria Horebeke in 1905.
She received her schooling as a painter, graphic designer and tapestry designer at the academy of Brussels (C. Montald) and Ter kameren (G. van de Woestyne). Thienpont then worked in the tapestry atelier of E. de Saedeleer and evolves from painting animated children figures (1934-1950) to wilder compositions that lead her to abstraction.
She finally returns to figuration with long forms (spirals, ellipses) and she incorporates sand and other crystalline material in her paint. Thienpont later worked as a art teacher in Ronse and Oudenaarde.
Exhibited in museums in Brussels and Louvain la Neuve.
