Maryland artist Susan Webster was born in the District of Columbia but because her father was employed with an international construction firm she grew up on the move, living throughout the United States. Webster graduated from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in the summer of 1986 with a degree in printmaking. She was an Artist in Residence at Millersville University and went on the work as a cartographer for an environmental firm in Philadelphia. She later left her position as an adjunct instructor in painting, drawing and graphic Design at Cecil Community College in 2002 to focus on her art full time.
Webster’s acrylic paintings include varying compilations of collagraph prints, charcoal, fabric paints, collage, pastel and impasto on both canvas and paper. Most paintings have a 3-D element to them expanding beyond the canvas edge, who wants to stay within boundaries?
