Susan Peters, March First Friday

Susan Peters is an emerging NC artist you don't want to miss.  Her portrait of the human experience is both enlightening and liberating, a story of success and failure, of love and loss.  While her subject matter, like a mood, is various, her ability to capture your breath is consistent and encourages a appreciation of the life we are given.

Susan Peters Artist Biography:

I am originally from Woodstock, New York and have always been creating something. From the early years of finger-painting on rocks in the creek bed behind my grandmother’s house to present. After a long hiatus from painting, I have returned to it originally as a cold weather hobby, but after creating the first acrylic painting, I was immediately hooked. I started looking at everything around me in detail, noticing colors, shapes, light, and shadows.

I enjoy using bright colors in my work, and enjoy painting a variety of subject matter, as well as using varied techniques. Depending on my mood, I can go from painting flowers and animals, to abstract figures, flow art, and resin.

I consider myself to be an emerging artist, as I am just starting to display my work. To date, I have displayed my art throughout North Carolina. I currently have a painting in the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, North Carolina for the “State of the Art: Art of the State” show. I also display artwork with Local Color Gallery located inside 311 Gallery in Raleigh. I am a member of the Fine Arts League of Cary, Visual Art Exchange, and the Durham Artists Guild. I have work in private collections in North Carolina, Tennessee, New York, Massachusetts, Alabama, and California.  

In addition, I have had artwork published in the online literary magazine, The Charles Carter.

I also enjoy practicing hot yoga, riding my Tennessee Walking Horses, and traveling with my family.
