Susan McCarty
artist statement    

Susan McCarty is an award-winning artist and an accomplished equestrian. Horses have always been my first love and continue to be my passion, life vision and creative connection. Ultimately I strive for more then a likeness, I want to share the softness of their nose and the character in their eyes. I create with exacting detail as my way to the viewer into their deepest feelings.

Commissioned Portraits and Fine Art in graphite pencil and oil paint are my specialty. As an accomplished human portrait painter I am often called upon to include rider and horse, as well dog’s to the painting. I always look forward to expressing the vision of my clients utilizing my artistic skills.
