Having begun drawing and painting as a child, Susan had the opportunity to study at the Rhode Island School of Design’s children’s summer art program. During her college career she enrolled in drawing classes at the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a minor in Art from Rhode Island College. While at Rhode Island College, Susan studied sculpture and drawing with Enrico Pinardi and drawing with Rhode Island artist, John DeMelim. More recently, she has studied color and light with Bill Griffiths at the Worcester Art Museum’s school.
From the time I was small, I enjoyed color and shape in the environment around me. I work to fill my life with creativity, dynamism, learning and joy. Painting with watercolors gives me joy and challenges me to be continually learning and growing. I am always looking for new techniques, color combinations and subject matter.
Although I am always pleased when others enjoy my work, I paint for myself. My goal is not to copy every detail of the scene but to show the essence of my subject and to convey how I feel about it.
