Artist Profile

Susan Craig


Mediums: Watercolor, Pencil and Graphite, Pastel, Painting, Oil, Mixed Media Paintings, Ink, Drawing

Light, shadows and reflections combine to create an intense impression in Sue's paintings. Originally a watercolor painter, Sue made the transition to mainly oil on canvas. She loves the buttery consistency of oil paint and the transparent, smooth layers that are created by layers of glazing to add depth. Monochromatic, sepia tones and pen and ink are some of her variations.

Some of her best ideas come from drives or going for walks, where she has discovers an irresistible or compelling scene. Even familiar areas appear new in a variety of light, weather conditions and seasons. Whenever possible, she paints plein air.

Sue grew up in Chelsea, Michigan, graduated from EMU, where she majored in art education and curriculum. She taught middle school for 30 years, and drew and painted homes and area sites. Her paintings are in many area homes and businesses, as well as the CCA, Bay View located in Petoskey, and Cafe Luna in New Orleans. She is a yearly artist in residence at The Terrace Inn in Bay View in Petoskey, Michigan, where she paints many area cottages and bay view scenes.
