Description I saw the tugboat Stephen Scott from the upper deck of the Staten Island Ferry on my way to South Street Seaport in New York. I was attracted by the contrast of its red and yellow colors against the blue of the water.
Susan Savad, New Jersey Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement I first started painting when my husband went into the army and we went to Texas. Having nothing to do, I went to the craft building on base and was shown how to paint in acrylic.
After returning to New Jersey to live, I started taking adult education painting classes while raising my two sons. When my younger son started nursery school, I was able to enroll part-time at DuCret School of the Arts. Although it took me 7 years to complete a 3 year program where I took both textile design and fine art classes, I did finally graduate in 1989.
Since graduation, I have continued to work on my paintings. I am in the process of adding these paintings to Imagekind. In the meantime, additional paintings can be seen at http://www.susansavad.com.
In addition to working on my fine art, I also make flower designs which can be bought on t-shirts and other gifts. The website for my flower designs is http://www.designsbysusan.com.
