Susan Rios Bio

Susan Rios, American (1950 - )

Largely self-taught, Susan’s artistic potential was apparent even as a child. Her love of the outdoors inspired her to begin drawing scenes from nature. Today, she continues to find inspiration in the gentle-hearted beauty of everyday life.

Susan works from her home-based studio in Glendale, Ca, where you will see her painting objects, daughter Olivia, granddaughter Rosie, her cats and countless collectibles.

A painter of feelings and emotions, Susan creates familiar scenes that exude peace, harmony and romance. Images of cozy interiors, lush floral gardens and soothing seashores uplift the senses and the spirit.

When painting, she devotes herself to one image at a time. The close relationship she develops with each painting radiates from the canvas, evoking a sense of emotional closeness and intimacy that distinguishes her work from other contemporary artists.

A professional artist for more than 25 years, Susan spent the early years of her career working as a floral designer. She soon discovered that blending flowers was similar to mixing colors on a palette. To this day, flowers are an ever-present motif in many of her paintings, as are other "favorite things" - wicker chairs, love seats draped with afghans, intricate bits of lace, china cups and teapots.

An active participant in causes that touch her heart, Susan devotedly supports charities and nationwide organizations. Over the last quarter-century, Susan’s work has attracted the attention of many noted collectors and celebrities who have added her paintings to their private collection.
