Susan Schmidt is an Australian artist who paints contemporary figurative works. Her 'Seaburbia' series explores the cultural memory and heritage of the Australian beach house. Susan's paintwork is patterned, layered and rubbed back to achieve a weatherworn texture that recalls erosion of matter over time. These nostalgic pieces document the essence of coastal living that's being lost to time and development.
The artist trained at the School of Art and Craft, Adelaide, and worked as an illustrator and designer before turning her focus to painting. She has exhibited in solo and group shows internationally, in London, New York, Hong Kong, Istanbul, San Diego, Singapore and the Maldives.
