About Susie DeZarn

Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art.”
Leonardo da Vinci

I have been making art my whole life. Art is what awakens me in the middle of the night. It is the combination of all my senses, dreams, beliefs, joys and nightmares. It is my history of self and fixes inside what is broken. It explains the unexplainable and defines the indescribable in the only way I know how. I express myself in color, textures and line using paint, thread, paper and pencil—yet never limiting myself to any one medium. I draw inspiration from the collages of Romare Bearden, the colors of Chagall, Kandinsky’s song & dance, Gustav’s patterns and Joseph Cornell’s thought process. Or I draw inspiration from a bug or a rock or a particularly good day.

My art is escapism in its finest form and freedom in its highest degree. It’s the closest I will ever get to working next to God.

Inspiration

Louisville, KY - May 31st, 2009

This article was written by Mandy Thieneman and printed in their nursery newsletter! thanks MANDY! How Our Gardens Inspire Us Just the other day I received an email from a friend who happens to be a long time customer. She was thinking fall was fast approaching and wanted to share some photos of summer in her garden with her friends. And this collection of more than 200 photos was quite inspiring. What a beautiful record of what was happening in her garden among other places. Most of the photos are intensely up close with bold color and dynamic compositions that make you think, ‘what is taking place in my garden on a small scale?, what do I overlook when I walk past my garden with just a glance?, what delicate world am I missing?’. Immediately Susie’s collection of images made me want to jump up out of my chair, grab my camera and head out to my garden. So I ask all you other ...
