"Carolina Wren with Nest" - 6" x 8", oil and paper clay on wood
Welcome! You've arrived at Susan Garriques' online gallery of art.
Primarily an animal portrait artist, Susan's love for animals shines through in her paintings. In addition to her pet portraits, Susan paints wildlife and landscapes. The painting on the left is made from oil paint and paper clay - a brand new media for Susan. She is having fun working with paper clay, adding a new dimension and texture to her art.
Sit back, relax and have fun exploring. You'll find Susan's animal paintings and her landscapes from both the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and the Florida Keys here.
In 2015, Susan began her Baseboard Mice series.
Another "fun" project, each of the mice is an original oil painting painted on a "mouse hole". Not satisfied with just painting the mice, Susan has also written a story about each mouse. The Baseboard Mice are available for "adoption" for a very reasonable "adoption fee". The mice have their very own website (www.baseboardmice.com) and their very own blog (www.baseboardmice.blogspot.com).
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy exploring!
