Washington grew up in Brooklyn in a creative family. Her Japanese godmother and Sinophile father taught her sumi ink painting when she was seven. This was the beginning of a life involved in art and fashion. Susan worked in the fashion industry in New York for 15 years before
relocating to the Pocono Mountains where she currently creates art alongside her husband, British artist, Stephen Washington. Susan continues to incorporate textile, thread and vintage French and American pattern paper into her painted collage works, producing surfaces layered with textures, rich
colors and expressive line work. Her influences include the work of the early Synthetic Cubists, Abstract Expressionists and the St. Ives School of Painters. Susan’s work has been exhibited at
venues such as the Atkinson Art Center in the UK, Bethlehem House Gallery and Dutot Museum. Her work is collected internationally in numerous private collections.
