Compositions in Oil, Acrylic, and Mixed Media
Susan Gast grew up on Long Island, New York. She has always had a passion for nature and painting. As an adult, she began taking fine art courses at Suffolk County Community College. Many years later, after moving with her husband to New Jersey, Susan resumed her passion and enhanced her art education by studying art history and attending various art studio courses at Raritan Valley Community College. Although an experimenter in many mediums, oils emerged as her preferred choice. After a brief hiatus to focus on raising her son, she has resumed her painting journey. She paints that which inspires her, capturing the emotional imprint that she feels. Susan invites the viewer into that emotion in their own viewing experience.
