Susie Myers, North Canton area Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I reside in the Jackson Township area of Northeast Ohio after traveling from coast to coast and living in both rural and metropolitan areas from Los Angeles to New York and of course the Midwest. I have been painting since the early 1960s. Most recently, I was involved in animal rescue work, finding homes for over 11,000 dogs and cats over the previous 12 years. I have also explored the metaphysical including creative imagination, Reiki, crystal healing, tai chi, feng shui and yoga.
My favorite mediums are digital art, watercolor, ink, pencil & photography. I use a mixed media approach different than other artists, many times incorporating digital art in my compositions and designs which allows me to capture detail within my subject that is sometimes overlooked with more traditional styles of artistry.
I am also very excited about completing the first level of SKPA (Special Kids Photography of America) accreditation training. This adds yet another level to my artwork and has already given me great pleasure and a feeling of personal growth.
