Susan FitzPatrick is a Maine artist who enjoys recreating her love of the ocean in her paintings. She has a lifetime of experience in the creative arts but started formal training as an art major in college. She has also studied with several artists in varied mediums such as watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oil painting. Susan has spent many summers on the Maine coast and has traveled widely. The natural beauty of each area is unique but the sounds and smells of the saltwater environments are similar. It is this feeling of being near the ocean, feeling the breeze and hearing the sounds of surf and gulls that she tries to convey in her paintings.
