Workshops & Retreats

Susan Brown

Susan L. Brown has been an artist since her childhood, winning awards as a student in Ohio and in Chicago, at Northwestern University. Moving to CA in 1978, she continued studying drawing and painting at College of San Mateo, San Jose State, UCSC, as well as selected painting workshops from leading instructors, including at Ghost Ranch, NM. She has taught painting techniques privately and through various city parks and recreation departments throughout California. In the San Francisco Bay Area, Susan’s art has been exhibited at various galleries and has won awards at juried shows. In December 2011, Susan was invited to represent the United States in the Biennale Exhibition of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy. One of her acrylic figurative paintings was recently awarded special recognition from the Lightspace Gallery figurative juried exhibit. Her work is also in private collections. “I try to convey the emotion I feel from my subjects through vivid color and expressive technique. I especially enjoy painting in acrylics for the boldness of the palette and ability to add texture to my paintings. I also love to teach—to help each student discover and expand his or her unique expression and personal style.”

Susan was recently featured in ZoneArts, an Australian website that interviews artists around the world.
