Meet Susan Wiley, this week’s top American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador!
Having worked in nursing for many years, I feel that I had the opportunity to observe people, how they live their lives, and how they die — all of which is greatly reflected in my paintings, and in particular, my close-ups of flowers … there are so many parallels.
On the surface, my paintings are joyful, expressing the ordinary in powerful ways, using design and color. More recently, I have been adding mixed media to my repertoire to express an edginess to my subjects.
I have been teaching watercolors for over 2o years and have signature membership in the NorthEast Watercolor Society and the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society.
