Meet Artist Susan King, Spring Obsession Theme Division accepted Artist

Susan King
T-012  Weaving into Spring  wc 20x28 $350

     Susan King is a 30 year resident of the Murphys and Arnold areas. Now retired from full-time teaching, she has realized exciting new time to focus on her exploration of the visual arts. The wonder of the natural world, which surrounds the Sierra foothills and beyond, is her inspiration.
     Susan uses a variety of mediums and techniques to create unique emotional connections within her work. Watercolor, pastels, rice paper and printer's inks are some of the essential components of many of her pieces. "Every painting is a continual learning experience for me, considering the interaction of composition, design and color and materials. The process can be most humbling and exhilarating."

     She is a member of Arts of Bear Valley and shows her pieces at their various shows. She also displays work at Art on Main and The Magnolia Cafe. Susan has been awarded Ironstone Vineyard's annual theme division winner of the Obsession Art Show for two years, resulting in their vineyard poster each year.

Community outreach of the Arts to the children of the Highway 4 communities has included art classes presented by her for the students of Hazel Fischer and Michelson Elementary Schools. Susan has orchestrated an annual Art in Action event that enlists a range of artists from the area to create an opportunity for student exposure and enrichment.
