Susan Harris

Susan’s intuitive works are comprised of deep colors and rich textures that capture the natural beauty of the world around her. She works layer by layer, building depth into the painting using various materials like modeling paste, natural fibers, papers, acrylic gels and found objects. The creating process takes time, and throughout each step she adds color; different hues that are washed, glazed, troweled or scumbled, building layer upon layer. Each painting becomes a discovery, a story, and a study of the time it takes to create it. A single piece may take weeks or months to complete. Her work is sought out by both personal collectors and public organizations that recognize the unique, intuitive, and introspective aspects of her art.
