Sue Deutscher, Denver Member Since November 2011 Artist Statement I use my camera and pastels to produce images that, hopefully, stir emotions. Art, whether you’re the creator or recipient of it, should make you feel more alive, more vibrant, and more kind.
I live in Denver, Colorado. I was born in 1952, the same year that David Byrne was born and Elizabeth II was proclaimed Queen of the United Kingdom. I’ve enjoyed writing and art since I dragged a crayon across the wall (bad move on my part). Whether it’s a 500 word anecdote, oil painting, pastel art or photography, I like to play with words and images, the perfect toys who, when set free, go on to live their own lives.
My favorite medium is pastel, which comes from the French word for "paste." Pastels are rich and vibrant! A pastel art piece is considered a painting if it is covered edge to edge, and not a quick study or sketch.
I still like Talking Heads, and the Queen and I are still going strong. Thank you for looking, Sue Deutscher
