Sue Bloomfield is our featured artist for February.

I have always had a passion for the beauty of the natural world. I have expressed my creativity in fiber arts, printmaking, photography, and jewelry making, but I found my "home" as an acrylic artist. Painting allows me to interpret the energy, serenity, and joy I find in nature.

I paint landscapes and the animals that enrich our lives. I paint without including human constructs, instead focusing on aspects of nature that can easily get lost in our everyday lives.

Living in the Pacific Northwest, I have an unequaled opportunity to observe and paint the nature that abounds here. I also am inspired by many parts of the-West and the other countries I have visited.

My guide in what I paint is always movement, light, and color. Fluid lines are dynamic and elegant. Light and shadow add depth. Vibrant color adds to the beauty. While I am influenced by art throughout history that focuses on these, I strive to achieve my own interpretation.

I have paintings in private collections around the United States and have shown and sold my work in regional juried and invitational shows.
