Susan Duke Waters lives in a small town in North Georgia, USA, and was born in Bath, England. Artistic expression is a keystone of her life and a source of delight. Perhaps for this reason, she seldom illustrates gloom, preferring joy, the more whimsical and poignant the better. To this end, 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 out-of-doors, working predominately with oils, feeling the plein air experience hones the ability to find and capture the essence of a scene.
Waters’ work is 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.
