About Susan Spellman-
Susan Spellman started her art career as a staff illustrator at a filmstrip company after getting a BA in art from Marymount College in NY. She next worked as a freelance illustrator of children’s books and magazines, and has illustrated more than 30 books to date. While continuing to work as an illustrator and a portrait artist, Susan has been focusing more attention in the last 10 years on her own work as a painter. Her primary interest is to capture those fleeting moments when the combination of light and color feels magical and all the elements combine to create a story. She works primarily on site, painting “en plein air” in oil paint on either canvas or panels. The inspiration for her work comes primarily from the richness of the natural world in and around the Newburyport area.
