Susan Garriques is an award-winning artist best known for her animal portraits, both domestic and wild.
“Creating art is magical. Requiring my complete attention, the troubled outside world recedes. On the easel, my brush butters my canvas with colorful, rich-pigmented oil paint. Beauty and peace enter the studio. In a world with too much sadness, there is respite in nature. There is hope in beauty. My wish is for my paintings to be a ‘place’ someone can retreat to. And that perhaps some of the magic of creation still exists in them.” – Susan Garriques
