Suze Woolf is a Seattle-based watercolorist whose artwork is about sharing her love and concern of nature. “I’ve met my goal when I’ve transported the viewer into the world of the painting, but that viewer remains aware my hand was on the brush.” She says that a successful painting “walks a fine line between invoking reality and a collection of brush strokes.” Suze does much of her work in the field. “I feel great joy painting outdoor beauty, but I am always aware of threats to it. Whether it is my anxiety about climate change expressed in paintings of burned-over forests, or the eerily beautiful and faintly disturbing paintings of night-time industrial settings, I know that my best work contains both awe and ambivalence.”
Suze is one of 24 renowned artists invited to participate in the 2017 Zion National Park Plein Air Invitational. This annual event raises money for the Zion Forever Project, the official nonprofit partner of Zion National Park. Proceeds will benefit youth and educational programs at Zion for the coming year. Artists will paint in the park and provide free demonstrations throughout the week of November 6-12 in Zion Canyon, Utah.
