Drawing / Printmaking / Mixed-media

Susan Papanic’s primary love of artistic medium is drawing, but she is also a printmaker and mixed media artist.

Susan grew up in Madison, WI where she earned her BA and MA degrees in Art Education at the University of Wisconsin. She subsequently taught art in secondary schools in various places around the U.S. for about twelve years. In graduate school she worked in intaglio and woodcut prints, and has recently returned to the woodcut medium.

The natural world is her primary source of personal comfort and artistic inspiration, offering a feeling of wonder and always a sense of mystery. Susan also has an avid interest in the art and culture of indigenous people, stemming from various travels around the world.

“I am still struggling with the direction I want to go in art, but A6 is building my confidence and helping to point the way.”
