May Guest Artist Oil Painter Susan Fraley

Susan always had a love for art, but concentrated on a successful business career for many years.  Eventually, Susan knew in her heart she had to get those brushes out and smell the linseed oil again.  Today, Susan paints full time from her studio in Florida. She is proud to be an accomplished self-taught artist with inspirations from studying in Austria and Italy. Her passion is creating large scale oil paintings focusing on impressionism with a slight nudge toward realism. She produces unusual paint strokes using large brushes, brayers, wedges, and palette knives. Living in Florida, she has found a niche painting dramatic, provocative Mermaids. However, an occasional dog, bird, cat or gecko is never out of the question.  Susan exhibits her work at her home studio as well as throughout Charlotte County, Florida.
