Susan Washington


Susan Washington grew up in Brooklyn in a creative family. Her Japanese godmother taught her sumi ink painting when she was five. This was the beginning of a life involved in art and fashion. Susan worked in the fashion industry in New York for 15 years before relocating to the Pocono Mountains where she currently creates art alongside her husband, British artist Stephen Washington.

Susan incorporates textile, thread, and vintage pattern paper into her painted collage works, producing surfaces layered with textures, rich colors and expressive line work. Her influences include the work of the early Synthetic Cubists, Abstract Expressionists and the St. Ives School of Painters. Susan Washington’s work has been exhibited and collected internationally.
