CONCORD – The paintings of New Hampshire Art Association member Susan Clement will be on display at 2 Pillsbury Street through September.
Clement of Suncook finds inspiration for her paintings in the “beautiful colors and soft lines in nature.”
“I found painting to be the one subject I was compelled to do on a daily basis,” she said. “Throughout my academic years, I was drawn to art class and found a love of painting in my high school years beginning with watercolors and later journeying into oils and acrylics.”
In 1980, Clement was accepted into Notre Dame College in Manchester where she studied drawing, sculpture, painting and teaching.
In addition to pursuing a professional career as a fine artist, Clement teaches children ages 7 to 16, assisting them in developing their own artistic skills through painting in oils and drawing.
“For subject matter, I am especially drawn to painting the many beautiful seascapes off the New England coastline as I enjoy capturing the vibrant colors of the magnificent sunrises and sunsets I witness every time I have the pleasure of being there,” Clement said.
“Another of my favorite subjects are horses, often riding on our inviting New Hampshire beaches,” she continued. “My painting style is mostly impressionistic with a hint of realism, and at times, I venture into the depths of abstract as a fun diversion.”
In addition to the NHAA, Clement is also a member of the National/NH Women’s Caucus for the Arts, and a member of the Kittery Art Association and the Seacoast Art Association.
