Susan Butler Graham, Artist and Willow Glen resident

Art Box Location:  Curtner and Cottle


Susan grew up drawing and painting with her artist father and sisters. For her, painting is a way to practice mindfulness and share her love of nature with others. Her work ranges from simple line drawings and still life and animal studies to plein air landscapes and abstract creations. 

Susan studied Art and Spanish at Muhlenberg College in the 1980s. After retiring from teaching elementary school, she began painting in earnest in the spring of 2017. She is a member of the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Association, Los Gatos Art Association and the California Watercolor Association.

She tries to emphasize shapes and colors in realistic and abstract compositions in her watercolor paintings. She is constantly sketching and painting and honing her skills. She also works in collage, drawing, mixed media, mosaic, and quilts.
