SUSAN HARTMAN'S WEBSITE

The concept for my paintings comes from 2 major influences.  The first being nature with its array of color, light and texture.  The second is the pure process of painting.  

The first stroke of color can invoke an experience, an observation or a feeling.  Textures and layers of bold color defines my style of abstraction.  Oil paint, oil stick and cold wax blends perfectly with my varied expressive techniques.

I studied art at the University of Minnesota where I received a BFA.  I participated in several group and individual art shows.  Four of my abstract paintings were purchased by Citicorp and are hanging in their offices in Minneapolis.   

I lived in Tucson, Arizona for 3 years and there my focus was sculpting in metal.  

Since moving to California I have returned to painting with the beautiful California landscape as my inspiration.
