Cone Flowers. They make quite a beautiful painting don’t they? I love the pinks and lavenders that Susan Graeber used in this painting – and those touches of dark – really make this painting pop! I like how this painting has an abstract quality to it – just fabulous!

Susan Graeber. I absolutely love her style. It’s fresh and different. Her flowers are so beautiful and she varies her palette which I love. All subject matter is absolute perfection – from the beach scenes to waterscapes and everything in between! Whether Susan is using oil paint or gouache the results are beyond expectation!

My life long interest in painting began in early childhood attending the Bryn Mawr School, where creativity was encouraged. I attended Hobart William Smith Colleges for one year but decided to commit to an art college rather than a liberal arts program and transferred to the Boston Museum School for two years. While there, my family moved to Brussels, Belgium for three years. During my summer visits, I had the benefit of traveling throughout Europe and seeing many museum collections first hand. I also benefited from a number of European painting programs. I then transferred to the Maryland Institute and graduated in 1980. I had a few jobs related to the arts including a gallery position, settled down and married an art dealer who is a works on paper dealer, and had two children.
I always painted plein air when our children were growing up, especially enjoying Maine and the Maryland countryside. I now am a full-time painter and maintain a studio in The Mill Centre, Baltimore but mostly prefer to paint on location. I love to paint on Monhegan Island, Mount Desert Island, New Mexico and Maryland. I am influenced by the artists Arthur Wesley Dow, Fairfield Porter, Wayne Thiebaud, Neil Welliver, Edouard Vulliard and Henri Matisse. I am most attracted to places in nature where light is creating abstract shapes, and color is creating a mood. Capturing fleeting light is always a challenge, and a thrill when occasionally it works in a painting! When painting, or even seeing that spot that pulled my attention, I am drawn to unexpected movements of light and beauty.
