"Facets, with a diamond cutter's skills, can catch the light and sparkle," says Susan. "My good friend, Claire, and I were sitting in this room talking about how life's challenges are a 'faceting process.' Edges can either be smoothed out or sharpened. I wanted to remember this rambling, philosophical conversation by painting the green table, windows, curtains and chair."

Susan Walker

Issaquah, Washington

Artist Susan Walker began her art career at UC Davis under the mentorship of famed painter Wayne Thiebaud. He told her, "The goal of painting is to give the surface a life-force, not just the appearance of the thing." With this idea deeply ingrained in her creative process, Susan paints captivating snapshots from her life that radiate energy and a touch of mystery. Her tightly cropped compositions are highly suggestive, playing up simple elements in the image and giving the viewer plenty of room to fill in the details beyond the edges of the canvas. Susan works in a tiny cottage surrounded by greenery on her property in Issaquah, Washington. When not in the studio, Susan says she loves spending time with her large family and playing tennis, which "offers unique opportunities to apply the same sense of geometry I utilize in my artwork." Her paintings have been exhibited widely throughout the Pacific Northwest and are held in corporate and private collections across the United States.
