Painting in oils and acrylic I have been a professional artist for 25 years. Books have been published, including greeting cards and painting reproductions for the International market. Painting every day, working now on small 'morning paintings' which I have included on this website. Please visit my blog, http://susanjenkinsmorningpaintings.blogspot.com
I paint all genre concentrating primarily on still life. My paintings are loose and color filled. Small to very large. I believe that art should be fun, self expression. Teaching also for many years has enabled me to give so much of what I have learned. I am self taught. I decided many years ago that I wanted to be an artist and to make a living at it.With luck and alot of faith and hard work I am doing it!
So many times one of my students will tell me that they didn't go to school, so they can never be a 'true' artist! Again painting is self expression, let your 'true' self come out in what ever medium you choose, learn fundamentals, study,practice, work at it, concentrate, get good supply's and let yourself go! You can be a true artist! Have fun!
My studio is a few steps from my home, it is tiny, not fancy but I have a wonderful easel made by my step dad and plenty of good lighting!
