Short Bio

Susan Washington is an abstract painter originally from Brooklyn, NY. She comes from a family of painters and though has painted all her life she made her career in the fashion industry in NYC for 20 years before relocating to the Pocono Mountains to become a full-time painter.  She relocated to Baltimore in April of 2021. My paintings are visual narratives of my experiences, of love, of places (existent and non-existent),of emotions and of memories I recall from growing up in New York in the late 70s and 80s. There is a strong narrative running through Susan Washington's work that references her long involvement with collage, textiles, fashion and art. She comes from a family of artists and by age 5 Susan was tutored in the art of origami and sumi ink drawing by her Japanese godmother as well as watercolors from her father. She spent her teens deconstructing dressmaking as a punk fashionista. Washington then landed on 5th Avenue working at Dior and Nautica.
