Susan Overstreet’s creative process of weaving vibrant colors with a staccato technique of palette knife and brushwork captures a visual tapestry between abstract imagery and representation. In that vein, Overstreet forges a new path continuing the legacy of American Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism. Overstreet’s bold expressive style is driven by unique natural elements found on Cape Cod that offer an evolving kaleidoscope of color.
“I work quickly. Capturing the subject extemporaneously is vital to breathing life into it visually,” explains Overstreet. “Knowing what the paint can do by experimenting with its properties, I move the paint around the canvas until the image emerges.”
Susan completed studio work at George Washington University and continued studying fine arts at the Corcoran School of Art and the Art League School of Alexandria. Her work was accepted in many juried competitions in Virginia and now on Cape Cod. Susan has exhibited at The Provincetown Art Museum, the Cape Cod Cultural Center, and the Cape Cod Art Museum. She taught art to children in Fairfax Public Schools and served as president of the Springfield Art Guild. Susan now teaches at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. She is represented by Tree’s Place in Orleans.
