Susan Searway Art + Design focuses on the visual fields: Art, Graphic Design and Website Design. Print work or website, I do it all. I find the field very gratifying and challenging to create new compositions everyday for my clients. My true passion is the producing and exhibiting my artwork.
I look for stability in an unstable society. Based on this concept I have created my figurative series -- Persona, a personal reflection that focuses on the harmony of the body and the soul: the physical vs the spiritual, represented sometimes as one, sometimes as individuals. I try to blend the idealism of the human form in combination and contrast with the variety of people -- people seen through the lens of reality varying in shape, size, and form.
As for photography, I am a shutterbug. I will shoot anything and everything to find a composition. Yet I mostly concentrate my work on nature. The most wonderful thing about working with nature is that it is ever changing. You can never capture or see the same composition twice. There are always little nuances of change.
Whether working in photography or on a two-dimensional plane I try to capture the essence of my subject by focusing on their lines, patterns, textures, forms, colors, and shapes. My hope is to find a unique perspective in all my work.
I love to share my art with the community. Producing art is what makes me happy, so I try to focus as much time as I can on doing just that.
