About Me

I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

The queen of cottage art

I recently did a feature on a one of my favorite artists no longer with us (Ellen Clapsaddle), but today would like to share another favorite of mine--a modern day Cottage style artist SUSAN RIOS who resides in California. If you are a fan of cottage style, you can't help but drool over her work. I own a couple of her pieces and I literally would like to jump into her scenes....

I had the opportuntity of exchanging a few emails with her a couple years back, and she is one incredibly talented lady. Most of the children in her work are her grandchildren!

I am showing a few pieces of her Christmas work, but oh, there is so much more!

enjoy these wonderful works, but remember that these are copyrighted images of Susan Rios and should not be used in your art projects or resold.
I am including a link to her website--go in and drool...and just might buy something....

Oh I love her work! There used to be a wonderful cottage shop in a mall here that featured her work and I would just drool over it. What a feast for the eyes :)

I love Sue's work! I am especially drawn to the one of the 3 children standing in front of the little shop window.
