Susie Kelly Flatau
In 2011, midway through an eight-year residency in New York, Susie Kelly Flatau turned her creative attention to the intuitive experimentation with acrylics as a means for artistic expression. Following highly successful Texas careers—educator/consultant, author, designer/facilitator of creative business ventures—Susie now follows her bliss as a self-taught and emerging non-objective artist.
For inspiration, Susie examines and contemplates the natural world. She channels the vibrant energy observed in the transformative elements of nature and transfers that energy through fluid movement onto each canvas. Using an organic non-objective process she interprets familiar forms to invite the unpredictable. Her techniques include manipulation, altering, addition and subtraction of bold and dramatic colors. Her art is an extension of her relationship with both the outer world of nature and the inner world of her mind and spirit. With each painting, Susie hopes the viewer will experience a stirring of the soul and a reawakening of an important personal emotion or memory.
In 2015, Susie and husband, Jack, returned “home” to the Lone Star State. She currently works out of Studio 8 located above the Georgetown Art Center in Georgetown, Texas.
Susie’s works are installed in private collections nationally (New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Washington, Nevada, California, Missouri, Georgia, Texas) and internationally (China). Susie is represented by 1045 Elmwood Gallery for the Fine Arts (Buffalo NY) and Artisans Connect Gallery (Georgetown TX).
