Artist Statement
II experiment with different textures and techniques that means I introduce the unexpected into my work. Shapes, patterns and texture, plus a touch of whimsy are elements of my work. I like to find new ways to create with color, texture, and shape. I use strong color in contrasts. My work has turned to portraits in collage Acrylic and watercolor, often on canvas or polypropylene, are now integrated with mixed media using collage. The large portrait collages juxtapose images and texts from magazines. I show people who thrive on passion for art, love, duty, conviction.

Susan's artworks often reflect the diverse community of California. Her collage portraits look as if painted. As an Experimental Artist she loves the process of juxtaposing collage and images on top of watercolor, acrylic and mixed media. The unexpected results add an element of intrigue. Historically, portrait paintings have primarily memorialized the rich and powerful. Over time, however, it became more common for middle-class patrons to commission portraits of their families and colleagues. Today, portrait paintings are still commissioned by governments, corporations, groups, clubs, and individuals. In addition to painting, portraits can also be made in other media such as etching, lithography, photography, video and digital media. Now COLLAGE In her current work Susan creates collages from torn magazines. She often uses polypropylene, .called Yupo and mounts her art on boards. Susan Ashley has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area most of her life. She graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in Social welfare and was awarded a scholarship to the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Her art has received international and national recognition. She was awarded Signature Membership in the California Watercolor Association and an Artist Showcase Award from Manhattan Arts International’s “Hot Topics – Bold Expressions in Nature and Human Nature” juried exhibition. Her work has been accepted into an exhibition presented by the Audubon Artists at The Salmagundi Art Club, New York, NY. She has also exhibited at the Art Ark Gallery and the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery.
