About Susan Woolgar
Susan is influenced by water, shadow and texture. Using pastels, a choice inspired by Degas, allows her to exercise that “need to paint” she’s felt since her childhood. The scenes from her camera transform into paintings of serenity. There, she pursues the subtleties of color and technique, creating canvases rich in depth and motion. Susan is a member of the Alberta Society of Artist and is represented by the Stephen Lowe Art Gallery, Calgary, Alberta; Artym Gallery, Invermere, BC; Leighton Foundation, Alberta; Gallery IS, Red Deer and the Gallery on Main, Lacombe, Alberta.
I just received your DVD and it was love at first sight. The painting is stunning! It has such vibrancy and luscious colour. You explained more ways to use pastel than I could ever imagine. You are a natural teacher. I’m going to watch this DVD again and again and incorporate your ideas into my own painting. I’ve already made some of my own pastel paper just like you showed us. What fun!! All this and 2 complete demos, all I can say is excellent! Thank you. —Trudy F.
