FEATURED ARTIST: Linda Susak, Painter

Linda Susak is a typical 21st Century woman: she has had a demanding profession, three children, a husband, house and cat. Her typical day starts at 5 a.m. and ends at 9 or 10 p.m. when she finds time to read. What has kept her mentally stable, however, has been her time away from people, time in nature. The Western landscape gives her infinite, unending views and refreshes her soul.

Because she has land and a cabin in the Wet Mountains of Colorado, she has spent vacations there alone, hiking, taking photographs, and just communing with herself. There is a spiritual quality for her in this landscape. She has even found arrowheads while hiking, reminding her of the presence of Native Americans there more than one hundred years ago.

Although she has always made art, she did not complete a BFA degree until 2008 from Metropolitan State College in Denver, Colorado and has now gone back to her real passion in life. Beside creating her own work, mainly landscapes in oil, she also does commissioned work in oil, portraits in chalk pastel or in watercolor.
