Susan Stuller Student Show
Susan M. Stuller NWS TWSA
"My Artwork expresses my desire to take everyday subject matter and elevate them to a new life, either through vivid color or dramatic contrast. In doing so, I hope that people will become more aware of their surroundings. As the world changes so too will my paintings, and the subjects I paint. Therefore I am only limited by the size of my paper or canvas and my imagination."
Susan’s talent and skill emphasize rich color and vibrant imagination. She has been the recipient of many awards locally as well as nationally. She is a signature member of The National Watercolor Society, Baltimore Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society, Missouri Watercolor Society, Texas Watercolor Society, Virginia Watercolor Society, Watercolor West and Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club in New York City. You can view more of her work and awards at www.susanstuller.com.
Her work can be found in over 30 corporate collections as well as private collections in the United States. She also has paintings in North Light Book’s Splash 10: Passionate Brushstrokes and the soon to be released Splash 11: New Directions.
Susan has been an art instructor for over 20 years. She teaches 4 mixed media painting classes a week at Crossroads Art Center. She also teaches workshops locally as well as nationally.

Side Car Gallery:
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and have lived in Richmond for 24 years. I have been married to my husband, Fontaine, for 37 years and we have 3 children and 5 grandchildren ...all here in Richmond!
While I did not study art in college (I graduated as a Registered Nurse), I have always pursued creative things such as sewing, flower arranging, painting furniture and even cake decorating. I honestly feel like art found me! I started painting in 1995 without any formal training and continued to paint on my own for about five years. Since that time I have studied with many local artists such as David Tanner, Jane Joyner, Laura Loe, Curney Nuffer, Marjorie Perrin and David Elsea. I have learned something different from each one of them and have discovered that painting is an unending process of learning.
I am drawn to many different subjects, but the common thread between them is color!! I use bright colors in my paintings and I find great satisfaction in the joy it brings my clients and me. I love the richness of oils and often paint with a heavily loaded brush or palette knife for texture. Many of my paintings are of the landscape. I am constantly amazed at the beauty and intricacy of God's creation and I often ask for His guidance while I am painting. Any ability I have been given came from Him, so it seems like a logical place to go for instruction. I have shown my work at Arts Around the Lake at the University of Richmond, Crossroads Arts Center, Cafe Caturra, Revival, Artworks, Fraiche and many other locations around Richmond through the Bon Air Artists Association.
I consider painting my true PASSION and I consider it a privilege to pursue it throughout the rest of my life! I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings as much as enjoy creating them.
