Susan Patricia  - 

 

Susan Patricia was born in Los Angeles, California. She attended Los Angeles Trade Technical College where she received a degree in Technical Illustration. She then completed further education at the Otis Parsons School of Design and at the University of Los Angeles in computer graphics, surface pattern design and photography.

 

Susan Patricia credits her parents for recognizing her artistic talent at an early age. They enrolled her in art classes when she was just starting kindergarten and the first grade. She responded enthusiastically to the instruction, which, in combination with her natural talent, helped her move rapidly toward further education as an adult and her entrance into the world of internationally recognized artists.

 

Although her initial education and work as a technical illustrator / graphic artist, she became interested in silk painting while on vacation at a Club Med in Playa Blanca, Mexico. Subsequently, she went to work for Club Med teaching the craft to others. Her teaching experience was an opportunity to develop her own skill, as well as, experiment with the technique. Captivated by the color and vibrancy of the French dyes, and aided by her formal education, she rapidly developed a level of realism and precision not ordinarily found in silk painting.

 

Susan Patricia's subject matter has been strongly influenced by her extensive travels throughout Europe, Central America and the South Pacific. Vibrant, luminous color; warm, tropical imagery; and a serene South Pacific mood are all embodied in her silk paintings.

 

Her work has been shown in major trade shows throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. She has enjoyed success through special exhibitions of her work in prestigious galleries throughout the continental United States, Mexico, Hawaii, Guam and Japan.

 

The Hyatt Regency Hotels and the Embassy Suites Hotels in Hawaii have commissioned her for originals. Her art has been featured in numerous publications including Hawaiian Airlines In Flight Magazine, Architectural Digest and other art related magazines. Her art has also been licensed for use on many products including greeting cards, calendars, puzzles, apparel items and house wares.

 

Susan Patricia has taken the art form of silk painting and has developed a level of realism that lets her style stand out to be recognized

 

Though her travels throughout the South Pacific, Europe and Central America, she has been able to create a warm tropical imagery through warm and vibrant colors that are so believable that if you stop and look at her artwork, you might hear the waves and birds in the background.
