Featured Spring Artist: Sue Kitzmiller Blaney
Artist Statement, March 2014
This work reflects my love for fashion, portraiture, and Barbie.
Images of fashion and glamour have inspired me since I was young.
While doing my work, I can visualize myself as the model and/or costume designer. Through my drawing and painting I love building the drama beyond the found image…this is how I make it my own.
My background is in design.
I’m a graduate of UC DAAP Fashion Design and had a wonderful 30+ year career in the creative industry…highlights were my years at Pogue’s, US Shoe and LPK. I retired from LPK in 2010.
In 2009 a dear friend pulled me into an informal class and I was back into doing art, illustration and portraits….and have not stopped since!
