Susan Blubaugh has been painting landscapes, still life, and the occasional portrait in Bucks County, PA and Hunterdon County, NJ since 2001. She started her career as a painter and illustrator in New York City where she studied at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design. Artist Curt Hanson says of her work, "Her drawing ability is impeccable and the paintings always reflect a freshness only gotten by firsthand observations....I always see a patient seeking of visual truth that is imbued with the excitement of honest discovery." Among her many awards are prizes from the 85th and 79th Phillips Mill Exhibitions, where she also received the Best Traditional Oil Painting Award in 2007. She has also had several solo exhibitions in regional venues. Susan's beautiful light and shadows record a fleeting moment in time in her richly painted compositions.
