Susan Black moved to San Francisco in 1996 after a 20-year New York-based career in corporate communications; she holds a BA in Literature from Connecticut College.
After having made her living for so long using words, she found that California's light, scenery, attitude and whole way of life awakened in her a desire to communicate in visual terms.
Her work has appeared in local, regional and national juried shows since 2005.
My focus is watercolor, where I seek simplification and distillation. California Natives in Golden Gate Park expresses the local landscape in my own visual language. Memory is one of my many meditations on shells, which are powerful personal metaphors.
