I am Susanne, a self-taught expressive abstract painter and trailing spouse from Munich, happily based in Falls Church since 2019. I work in acrylic, although I occasionally incorporate collages, oil pastels and ink into my pieces too. I am and always have been naturally drawn to the visual and visceral language of abstract art. The degree of independence from visual references in the world allow me to express freely through shape, form, color and line. My subject matter vary and at the moment I’m exploring women portraits. I work intuitively, quite often with an unclear vision of the final outcome.This liberal process is both wonderfully freeing as it is intimidating. For me, it is the most challenging and rewarding experience. A profound way to express and connect.
