Susan Dryden – Artist Statement:

My painting of interiors is done with the intention of creating quiet spaces which are restful. Places that might evoke memory of places known or places they can mentally slip away to.

I use rooms of my own, friends or from images I find that speak to me. I combine images with photoshop with others to create the composition and environment that suits me. I use acrylic or oil in conjunction with paint pigments that allows me to mix a greater range of colours.

In this busy world with so much negativity on our screens and in the news, I hope my paintings might provide a little peace for those viewing.
