Susan Duke Waters lives in Rockmart, Georgia, USA, and was born in Bath, England. Artistic expression is a keystone of her life and a source of delight. She uses a variety media, working in oils, watercolor and acrylics as well as clay and papier mâché.
Recently, Waters has shifted emphasis to painting on location, working predominately with oils, feeling the plein air experience pushes the most authentic response to the subject and hones the ability to find and capture the essence of a scene.
She won “Best of Show” in the Rockmart Cultural Arts 2019 Juried Show for “Flower Power ”, currently on display through February.
She was “Jerry’s Artarama’s” featured artist last month. To view the interview, click here or use this url: https://www.theartlist.com/aom_12_18.html

Waters’ work was used in the “Art of Georgia: Portraits of a Community” Exhibit, displayed at the Georgia Capitol Building.
Her painting “Exalted Company” placed second in the Forgotten Coast Plein Air Festival Quick Draw, Open category, May, 2017.
She participated in the Arts Station September 30th 2017 Stone Mountain Plein Air Paint Out and was awarded a Purchase Prize for “Sunshine and Stone“.
She is a member of Oil Painters of America, the American Watercolor Society, the Georgia Watercolor Society (Signature Member), and the Rockmart Civic Arts Commission with whom she is a former Artist of the Year.
