Susan Irish

I am currently working on a body of paintings from very small to extra large. They are abstracted views of my garden and manifestations of really deep thoughts. Ever since I was  a child, I have been very serious.

It shows in my work with themes of social justice and concerns for Mother Nature.

I am a painter. Although I was classically trained in oil, I came to appreciate acrylic paint.  Then I discovered Encaustic.Encaustic is the ancient art of painting with beeswax and paint pigment.  I am a passionate teacher who gets to explore art with children, adults, and occasionally some extraordinary young adults with special needs.
