Artist Statement

Artist Statement Susannah Lynch My painting and multimedia work is an extension of my own emotional and intellectual life. I experiment with art to fulfill something that cannot be expressed in any other way. Memories of places, thought and feelings made manifest through tangible means. Not only that, but I strive to engage the viewer emotionally and intellectually in my work. Light, dark, value contrasts and color all evoke a response of some kind. My goal is to continue to grow, experiment and exist as a painter/creator and to share that experience with others. I have been interested in art from a very young age. I was raised in Southern Maryland in rural St. Mary's County on a small horse farm. Nature and living things have always inspired me. My parents were very encouraging and were creative themselves. They always made sure I had plenty of materials to experiment with in my artistic endeavors. I live and raised my family in the same town where I grew up. I continue to be inspired by the rural surroundings, and the sweet light that exists between two rivers.

Artist Bio

Artist Biography:  Susannah Hartshorn Lynch

I was born in Alexandria VA on January 20, 1962.  My family spent a few years in Venice California while my parents finished school, after which we moved to St. Mary’s County Maryland.  I have lived here ever since.

My art education began with my mother, who was an artist, and encouraged me in artistic pursuits.  I attended St. Mary’s College of Maryland in St. Mary’s City, MD and graduated in 1987 with a BA in art.  I was a member of a gallery in the area for a short time after graduation, but family situations made it impossible for me to continue being involved in the gallery, and in art in general.  I started working in art, painting and multimedia, again in the early 2000s and since about 2008 have been working consistently.  I have been involved in Art Market events and have also taken workshops to hone my skills. I have also exhibited in several group exhibitions, including National Association of Women Artist's 2017 small works exhibit.
