About Susan -
Hi!....I’m Susan and I LOVE to paint!
Although, my love for the arts started back in my high schooldays with my first art classes, the last 15 years have provided me with the most inspiration, when I was introduced to Watercolor painting. Raising my 2 sons and working, left little time for art, but since my retirement in 1999 and moving to Lake Havasu City, Arizona, from California, I have had the opportunity to explore my creative side. I enrolled in Ceramic classes a tMohave Community College, but in 2003, through encouragement of a friend, I decided to try my hand at Watercolor painting. With inspiration from my teacher, Barbara Bradley, I fell in love with this medium. I discovered just how much I adore color, and was able to transport that to paper. During the past years, I have joined the Havasu Art Guild which enabled me to enter my 1stjuried art show in the spring of 2010, where I received 1st place for Watercolor, along with 3rd place for Mixed Media. In 2012 I received the Award of Merit for my painting entered in the Water Media category. More recently, my painting won 1st place for Havasu landscape category, in the Havasu Art contest sponsored by Havasu regional Medical Center where the painting will be permanently displayed on their walls. Stretching my abilities by painting various subjects, such as portraits, landscapes, flowers, buildings, andanimals has become my passion. As I grow as an artist, I plan to expand my artistic abilities to include mixed media and acrylics. My paintings can be seen regularly at MCC art shows, Havasu Art Guild spring show, Aquatic Center, Havasu Regional Medical Center, and various places around our city.
