Artwork by Susan Novak

Susan Novak’s love for art began during her childhood and has continued throughout her life. “I always enjoyed drawing as a child. I majored in art in college and was fortunate to be able to make a living as a graphic designer and illustrator,” she says.

Susan works in a realistic painting style, usually painting with oils. Susan has been represented by a number of galleries over the years, but since moving to Arizona she is painting for her own enjoyment. Susan has earned awards at the Plein Air Grand Marais outdoor painting festival.

As a dedicated artist with Art 4 Shelter, Susan believes it is a worthy cause and has contributed to the event since it began eight years ago.

Susan was born in Iowa and now lives in Arizona. Over the years she has lived in Colorado, California, Minnesota—for 21 years—and Maryland.
