After nearly a fifty-year dormancy, with a career of thirty-six years in motion picture film production, Susan Dukow's original passion to create art began again in 2018.
In the 1960's, Susan's time at The Philadelphia High School for Girls provided her the opportunity to study and to create art extensively, as part of the school’s four-year curriculum.
The approach to art was formal and it prepared Susan for her continuing education at The Philadelphia College of Art where she studied Fine Arts. However, in the early 1970’s, Susan found herself in Northern California caught up in the times and her art fell to the wayside.
At the beginning of 2018, Susan made a commitment to return to what she always loved the most, creating art. A bit rusty and insecure at first, she dove into classes and into a journey of personal rediscovery.
Now, with an abandonment of inhibitions, Susan is free to experiment and explore.
Her new bodies of work have taken her to mixed media, collage, 3D assemblages and a return to her original love of acrylic painting… and beets.
