Susan Grissom, NY Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement I love the creative life. I am a mixed media artist, collage maker, abstract painter, landscape painter, digital artist and photographer. I collect paper antiques and like to incorparate them in my collage (shown on my website), Color is my biggest stimulate, a color can lead me into painting as well as an interesting texture can.
I have been a Decorative painter of Interiors and furniture for many years, both
Nationally and Internationally. I worked with a team on a 9th century Architectural Restoration in the 1980's just outside of Siena Italy on the Spannocchia Estate. It was the best thing I have ever done. It was the stepping stone to all the choices I made for my artistic life and continues to influence me in color and techniques of aging and patinas always seems to show up in my work.
