Suzy ‘Pal’ Powell

God has truly blessed me by allowing me to create.  I have done a lot of different things, but painting is my favorite.

We live in far west Texas where the wind and tumbleweeds blow!  And we live on a cotton farm and have 2 grown children, in-laws and 4 grandchildren.

I have been painting in watercolor since about 1990.  Along with the watercolors, I do lots of drawing, sketching, collages and now I have started doing oil paintings. I love bright colors, and western art is my favorite subject, even though I don’t do a lot of it. Watercolor is my favorite medium but the torn paper collages run a close race!

I started doing the mixed media collages in 2010 and have really enjoyed them.  Some have been licensed, and sold at Kohls, and Home Goods Stores. As of 2016, Kirklands is carrying a church painting.

I am a signature member of Southwest Watercolor Society SWS, Wyoming Watercolor Society WyWS, and Artists of Texas  AOT,

I also teach monthly lessons as well as workshops. Along with Commissions.

I never had art in school, and started out on my own basically but have gotten to take some workshops along the way. They are great but it all boils down to hours and hours of practice, ruined paintings and paper!

I have been selected to be in two North Light ‘Incite’ books. The 2nd will be out in Sept. 2015. In September 2016 I will be in Incite 4 with camper collages.  I have also been in Chris Unwins ‘Artistic Touch’ books. 
In 2009 one of my watercolors was on the cover of Daniel Smith Catalog, and Christopher Cross purchased one of my Christmas pickups for his Christmas CD. 

I love to teach and share what God has blessed me with, and my philosophy is : ‘It is just paint and paper, Not a matter of Life or death, so enjoy the process.
