Susan Kessler, Santa Cruz Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I have always been interested in art. In 1995, I started taking art classes at Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA . I've mainly been doing acrylic painting and also some photography. Over the years, my work has been in juried art shows and I have exhibited at the Santa Cruz County Fair, where I have won numerous awards for my artwork and photography. I continue to strive to keep learning and experimenting, not only with painting and photography, but also mixed media and digital art.
