Susan Barnes grew up in Alaska where the landscape was a constant inspiration. She received her MFA at SUNY Buffalo in New York in 1982. In addition, she attended Portland State University, University of Montana and the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. Her evocative landscapes combine elements of photography, collage and painting with a fluidity of motion expressed through her passionate hand. The sense of place Barnes creates is both expansive and introspective, much like the landscape she experienced during her youth spent in Alaska and Montana. Barnes’ thirty year tenure as an artist has brought her here to Maine where she creates unique and moving vistas using the mediums she loves; paint, collage and photography.
Susan Barnes is represented in Maine by Greenhut Galleries.
