SUSAN GUEST-MACPHAIL – Painting and printmaking have been part of my life journey. I go from one to the other often and mix them frequently. Sometimes I use found objects and flea market items that seem to fit into the project of the moment. Humor is very important in the outcome. Local landscapes and seascapes are sources of inspiration along with people in various stages of peaceful play. This stage of my life is to push on to new ways of expressing the joy in my work through experiment.
Susan has taught pastel and watercolor classes, judged art shows and has work in several very fine galleries. Her work has been shown in New York at the National Arts and Salmagundi Clubs, and she has won many awards including the cover of Arts Around Boston Magazine.
Memberships include: Rockport, North Shore, Newburyport and Cambridge Art Associaitons; Monotype Guild of New England, Academic Artists; The Pastel Society of America, Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and the Copley Society.
