Susan Grace Branch

Susan Grace Branch is a native-born Oregonian. Her love of the forests, fields and oceans of the Pacific Northwest along with their flora and fauna have called her back to her home state, most recently from southern Arizona. Susan's home is now in McMinnville, Oregon where she keeps studios for both wall art and jewelry making (wearable art.) Being here has certainly already influenced her creati...ve work. She is looking forward to more opportunities to deepen and expand this process.

Susan's artistic style would be considered eclectic, the consequence of a life-long fascination with possibility thinking, looking for the patterns that connect thoughts, ideas and philosophies inside of disciplines and between disciplines. Much of her work has been with diverse groups and with cross cultural groups. Susan is skilled in finding common ground with diverse groups and facilitating people to do the same. She finds it exciting to see people and groups celebrate and learn from their similarities and differences. Having studied, lived and worked interstate and internationally has been formative to this skill.

Susan's interests range from the sciences, the arts, archeology, anthropology, sociology, mythology and psychology and our interrelationship with the world that surrounds us in its many and varied forms. And, how to bring them together in a coherent form. Some of Susan's influences include Joseph Campbell, Gregory Bateson, Vincent van Gogh, 14th Dalai Lama, Milton Erickson, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Leonardo da Vinci, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Ursula le Guin, Jackson Pollock, traditional Balinese painting, Rene Margritte, Marc Chagall, Remedios Varo, Herman Junger, Wolfgang Rhas, Wendy Ramshaw... and many more.

Susan has work represented in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia, The Western Australian Art Gallery, The University of Iowa and in many national and international personal and professional collections. Susan has earned B.A. Art Education, B.A. in Three-Dimensional Design, M.A. in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, M.F.A. in Multimedia.

Morning Glory Fine Art by artist Susan Grace Branch - Description: The beginning edge of day when we see the stars fade and the clouds begin to be painted by the sun. This is a delightful time of day to allow nature to fill our minds with whispers of wonder. This wonder is what I want to capture and share in this painting. It is painted primarily with painting knives (aka palette knives) and is inspired by the southern Arizona landscape where I lived on and off over 16 years.
