Susan Stefanski

Susan Stefanski has experimented with many mediums such as metalwork, stain glass, printmaking, drawing and painting.

Although all avenues of creativity are interesting I am drawn to representational painting in oil, watercolor and pastel. Painting is spiritual and serene and promotes a feeling of contentment and joy to be shared with others. I participated in numerous juried and non-juried shows, have had commissioned works and multiple awards noting Grand Prize for Haverford Library's Art of the Garden Exhibition 2011 My representational natural subjects, predominately landscapes, capture light, color and feelings falling under an umbrella of "God's Gifts".
