Artists Statement
As an artist, Susan loves the process of juxtaposing collage and images on paintings using watercolor, acrylic with mixed media. The results always add an element of intrigue.
Historically, portrait paintings have primarily memorialized the rich and powerful. Over time, however, it became more common for middle-class patrons to commission portraits of their families and colleagues. My new work of collage is created with Japanese papers such as Rice Paper or Washi paper. It makes a painterly look to collage.
