Bio

A nationally recognized artist, Susan Lynn’s watercolor paintings are frequently described as luminous and serene. Painting primarily with transparent watercolor, she is captivated by the interplay between the land, the light, and wide open spaces, and believes that nature is a subject that speaks to the viewer in a visceral way, tapping into universal memories and emotions, and the human connection to the world around us.

Though accomplished in the field of architectural illustration, fine art painting has been her primary focus for many years. Susan creates her paintings both in studio and “en plein air”, a term coined by the French Impressionists meaning to paint the landscape from life, “in the open air.” While painting out of doors with watercolor presents a unique set of technical challenges, she believes that it develops a greater sensitivity to the subtleties of light and the energy of the landscape.
