Through my colored pencil drawings, I transform the harsh and cold qualities of urban structures into calmness and atmospheric beauty. Environmental issues important to me are addressed indirectly through the respectful manner in which these scenes are portrayed, void of its familiar companions of litter and disrepair. My realistic style is expressed through the use of repeating shapes, dramatic perspective, wide use of values, and the study of light and shadow.

Susie’s colored pencil piece, “Going Green - The Hologram Makeover”, was accepted into “Imagine Tomorrow” exhibit at The Huntsville Museum of Art. This exhibit runs through September 12, 2010. The Little Green Store on Monte Sano Blvd has a selection of her work for sale.
