Susan Carlin

Bio: Susan Carlin is primarily a portrait painter who maintains a studio and gallery in San Antonio, Texas, where she gives free online painting demonstrations each week.
The Nueva Street Gallery is located in the historic arts village, La Villita, along the Riverwalk, downtown San Antonio, in a house built in 1891. Rather than my giving the usual precis of the artist’s milestones, you should just go directly to Susan’s website, where she expresses herself with a wry humour that trumps anything I might say. I met Susan at the 2010 International Pastel Festival in France, where she was one of the eight representatives that did the U.S proud.
