Susan Logan - Artist Biography
Susan Logan was born in Long Beach, California in 1949. Her background includes a scholarship at the Art Center of Design in Pasadena and study at California State University in Long Beach. She has had extensive personal study with world renowned master lithographer Ernest DeSoto (formerly of the Tamarind Lithography Studio), who was the printer for Diebenkorn and Cuevas along with several of her own works, two of which are featured on this site. Susan is a signature member of the “Women Artists of the West” group.
Susan's paintings and lithographs of the American West genre have been on exhibition and shown with artists James Bama, Harry Jackson and R. Brownell McGrew's art work. Additional themed works such as Susan's "Faces of Los Angeles" have been presented in solo shows and featured in numerous other exhibitions, galleries and private collections.
All of Susan Logan’s paintings exhibit a passion for realistic detail and feeling. Her compositions display a life-long, heart-felt interest in real, everyday life. Her extensive world and regional travels and her study of different cultures results in an inclusive view that is demonstrated in her work, which has been featured in many private collections. Whether it’s a mountain lion “On the Prowl”, a kid bumming spare change in “MacArthur Park”, or a Hopi elder in quiet “Reflection”, the subjects and settings receive her utmost respect and attention to detail. “Cross-cultural” and “cross generational” themes are apparent in many of her paintings. She has shown particular appreciation of Native American, Western Cultural, and Western Wildlife themes, as shown in her finely detailed drawings, lithographs, and paintings. She is proficient in many mediums (watercolor, acrylic, oil, chalk), but her favorite is watercolor, where her “dry brush” technique results in rare clarity of feeling.
Susan presently lives with her engineer husband in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she maintains her studio and gallery.
