After graduating from college, Susan Winslow taught drawing and painting at the secondary level and later found other creative outlets such as illustrating a children’s book; working on set direction for the Smithsonian Institution; and working at a maritime museum in New York. After 25 years in advertising and graphic ad design, Susan is retired and painting full time in the medium of watercolor.
Susan explains it this way, “Artists of the past and present speak to me with their music, stories and poems. However, it is with painters that I feel a special kinship. Painting is my way of expressing delight in my everyday surroundings. I walk the beaches and observe the moods of the ocean and the people at play and contemplation. I delight in the patterns created by sunlight playing on palm fronds, the subtle color gradations of foliage and the majesty of the old oak trees and sycamores indigenous to this part of the world.”
