Susan Schwake
December 2014 Art Exhibit

This eclectic body of work spans the past ten years to present in my work. The subject matter changes and returns for further examination across media. Oil painting gave way to watercolor and gelatin printing for me. Acrylics replaced oil in the opaque painting arena.  Form and line yields to color and experimentation, which is where I feel most at home.
