November Display Artist
Susan Payne was born and raised in Burien, Washington. She studied in Seattle and New York City, but she always came back to the beloved Northwest landscape. She had a long career as a professional Achitect but always needed freehand art after a long day of computer drafting. Susan no longer works full time and retired and concentrates on drawing and painting. This past year she has been focusing on landscapes and cityscapes, especially in watercolor, and also keeps an almost daily sketchbook. She loves painting action and horses and the outdoors. Susan has been displayed in many art shows over the years.
Next Month's Display Artist is Linda McClamrock.
