Susan Rios(1950- )
Born Feb, 1950 in Terre Haute, Indiana. Rios was raised and now
reside in the Los Angles area. She won an rt scholarship to
California State University, Northridge in Los Angeles. After
colle shw worked briefly for an advertising agency, and later spent
five years working as floral designer: "Flower were really my first
love." she says. "Their three-dimentional beauty and color have
influenced beauty and color have influenced everthing I have done since.
I do not think I have ever done a painting without flowers in it.
After all, floweres are emotion. No heart is so hard that it
doesn't respond to flowers. " Rios has her own distinctive style that
doesn't pay homage to any particular school of thought. To be sure, her
blend of illustrative realism and impressionist imagery evoke a
soothing, cathartic response which sets her own apart from other
contemporary artist today. Her serigraph has been collected by
world wide audience and collectors.
