Cover Artist: Susan DeBow
Just Be Yourself
Susan DeBow is an artist/writer who sees life as a series of vignettes woven together by time, laughter and, when necessary, a few curse words. Her art reflects those sentiments.
The artist has a fascination for taking beauty out of the equation and focusing on character and quirks. “The characters in my paintings would make excellent party guests,” Susan says. As characters in novels do, Susan’s characters have attitudes, speak their minds and live colorfully, taking “guff” from no one.
Her art has been called “Biomorphic Whimsy.” She paints what she sees in her mind’s eye versus landscape and still-life. Her paintings are not complete until she brings her paintings to life with a story that tells a tale about the characters in her paintings.
Her work can be purchased from her website, www.susandebow.com. She is Artist-In-Residence at Eight Gables Inn, outside of Gatlinburg. She is honored to have her work presented there.
