Susie Garrett, a mixed media artist, draws inspiration from captivating images and objects that catch her eye. She employs a diverse range of techniques to create her 2D and 3D pieces, including painting, drawing, illustration, metal fabrication, woodworking, assemblage, and sewing.
In Susie’s artwork, actual objects are transformed and integrated into meticulously rendered colored pencil drawings, becoming believable components within the piece. For example, a combination of a radio fuse, metal rod, and metal scraps can be reinvented to form a utility pole with birds perched on a wire in a sunset landscape. By skillfully arranging random pieces of wood and wire mesh, Susie captures the essence of an actual pier, complete with reflections on the water. These invented 3D elements play a vital role in her artwork, captivating viewers and inviting them to see things from a different perspective.
Through her work, Susie Garrett aims to educate, inspire, entertain, and challenge individuals to take a second look at the world around them.
