Artist Statement:

Nature is my inspiration. I most enjoy spending time in the great wild in all seasons. Hiking through forests, climbing cliffs and hills, meandering along creek beds, foraging for mushrooms, and searching out curious earth forms, all fill me with the wonder and the strength to illustrate the landscapes I produce.Susan S. Kukle

My Artwork:
Since I was a youngster growing up away from urban life in Platte Clove, part of the Catskill Mountains, I have worked plein air.  

As I sit in concentration and work on my painting, often for hours, I lose myself in a meditative frame of mind. My style is expressive and impressionistic with more of a drawing method capturing the view. My images are alive with texture, light and bright hues.

I have replicated a Victorian house and construct floor cloths which are painted rugs, create button jewelry made with retro materials and paint installation murals.
