Susan J Schrader Art
My work is about life. About release. About letting go. About giving oneself up to what life has to offer: happiness, love, friendship, wonderment, grasping/releasing. My paintings show my love of drawing! I draw very organically with the India ink on the blank canvas and see what creatures will come to life. Then I begin to add my color – I’m in love with bright, vibrant colors and loads of detail — dots upon dots!
My paintings are about life and love and friendships. They are about relationships within yourself as well as with other people and moments in life. I communicate emotions through the simplicity of my quirky, little figures. These creatures live amongst themselves on their own or together in a moment in time. How they themselves interact with each other upon the surface of the canvas invites us to perhaps ponder how we feel when we are faced with a moment in our own lives that brings us connection to someone or something.
