Where most people would see a carton of eggs or a vegetable, oil painter Susan Jarvis sees a story, brimming with life and meaning. Her stunning work conveys these images visually with vibrant color and rich texture.
Born and raised in Utah, Jarvis expressed her artistic tendencies early. As a two year old, she created her first masterpiece in red lipstick on her mother’s white chenille bedspread. While it didn’t quite receive the praise the young artist hoped for, Jarvis persisted in developing her interest in the arts.
Susan continues to paint her joyful narratives and teach oil painting classes and workshops. She feels that her mission as an artist is to create quiet, restful work by combining traditional painting with a nontraditional view of her subjects. She is currently a member of Oil Painters of America (OPA), Women Artists of the West (WAOW), National Oil & Acrylic Painter’s Society (NOAPS), Utah Artists, and American Women Artists (AWA).
Jarvis’ work has been published in Southwest Art, American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, Utah Music & Arts, and Artists of Utah. Thirteen of her works are hanging in the Utah Huntsman Cancer Institute permanent collection.
