Suzanne M. Packer exhibited her first work in the San Francisco Museum of Art when she was five years old.  Her work has since been exhibited and collected from New England to California, Greece, and Pakistan. It is in many private and corporate collections, including the Cahoon Museum of American Art, the Cape Cod Museum of Art, and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.

Packer became the founding Director of the Cape Cod Museum of Art in 1983, after living in Mexico City, Mexico and London, England. Years living abroad had a significant influence on her painting. Her formal training includes the Rhode Island School of Design, the Art Students League of New York City, and the Fine Arts Work Center of Provincetown. During the Cape Cod years she has maintained studio spaces at the Brewster Street Studios, Provincetown, MA, the A Street Studios and the Fenway Studios, both Boston, MA and the Owl Studios at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. Now her unruly Bass River gardens and the ever-changing waters of Cape Cod find their way into her work at her Horse Way Studio.

2018 was the year that Packer received the Muse Artist Award for “outstanding contributions to the Cape Cod Museum of Art and to the community”. With this award came Cape Waters Abstracted, a solo exhibition of her paintings held at the museum. Other one-person exhibitions over the years have included the Cahoon Museum of American Art in 1997, the Sparrow House Museum in 1999, and Spanning The Years: A. S. Packer & Suzanne M. Packer at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in 2007. The exhibition included paintings and illustrations by her father and mentor, the noted New York illustrator, A. S. Pacer. Solo exhibitions were at the Cape Cod Chat House Galleries, 2013 through 2016.
