Suzy Almblade is a creative born in Arizona. Art was a passion from the beginning but it wasn't until a university trip to Italy in 2010 that she discovered the joys of watercolor and has been painting with it ever since.
There was no other medium as delightful or curious. Perhaps it was the Italian food and scenery, but there was no question that watercolor had a unique edge acrylic and oils didn’t: the surprise. Unlike oils and acrylic which can be so easily manipulated, watercolor was special in that it had a mind of its own. Clouds done in wet on wet would form on paper and dry very different. How exciting it was to be surprised at your own work after putting the paintbrush down! She
Ten years of dedicated practice with the difficult medium of watercolor has led her to become a full-time artist whose brush finds a delicate balance of colorful details and giving the water the freedom to play with the pigments. Suzy works from her home studio in Payson Arizona with her twin sister Roxy, also an artist, and is a member of the local Art League. Recently Suzy has created art tutorials for intermediate watercolorists on the website Skillshare and enjoys interacting with her students.
