Artist’s Statement

 “I derive my oil painting technique from the plein air school by painting from life whenever possible. I am also a passionate colorist!  I value initial impressions to keep my work fresh and exciting. I am attracted to the dramatic, the unusual, and a unique point of view in my subject matter. I look for high levels of contrast, intriguing shadows and darks to complement the lights, and especially juicy and interesting colors to interpret.  I strive to make my paintings look effortless and dynamic, as though I got it right on the first pass: the right brush stroke, the right color and the right composition. I also endeavor to engage viewers by my interpretation of and passion for the subject, and hope they see something new even though they may have visited the scene many times before. And finally, I want viewers to sense the excitement and fun I experienced during the painting process.”

Pacific Colorist

Susie Y. Anderson has been described as a “Pacific Colorist” with her own distinctive impressionistic style. She is a devoted and prolific oil painter, and is especially passionate about painting outdoors from life as a plein air artist. For her, this approach to creating art not only vitalizes but renews her painting instincts by the many challenges it presents. An acclaimed landscape and marine artist, Susie finds broad inspiration for her work ranging from the dramatic sea and landscapes of her home in Hawaii to depicting the light and color of the vast farmlands and snow-covered mountains of her second home in Park City, Utah, and beyond.

Susie is a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA). She is also a Founding Signature Member of the Plein Air Painters of Hawaii (PAPOH), a Member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and the American Impressionists Society (AIS). The Pacific Rim Institute of Marine Artists (PRIMA) has invited Susie to represent Hawaii as a Fellow.  Her paintings are found in numerous private and corporate collections worldwide including the Hilton Hotels, and the permanent collections of the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and the City & County of Honolulu. Her paintings have also been shown in three shows at the Honolulu Museum of Art (formerly the Honolulu Academy of Arts) including “Artists of Hawaii” and multiple shows at the Museum’s Linecona Arts Center.


Susie moved to Hawaii in 1969 and is a graduate of the University of Southern California holding degrees in fine arts and medical illustration. She worked for the University of Hawaii School of Medicine as a medical illustrator and graphic designer for 14 years, and then formed her own litigation graphics company, Visually Speaking Inc., before becoming a full-time, professional fine artist. Susie has studied with acclaimed Hawaii artists Lau Chun and Gloria Foss, and noted mainland artists Kevin MacPherson, Ken Auster, Camille Przewodek, Charles Sovek, Ted Goerschner, Mary Pettis, Steve Songer, Doug Braitewaite, John Cosby and Kathryn Stats.

Susie is represented by Nohea Gallery, Fine Art Associates and Sunshine Arts in Waikiki and Kaneohe, and Kai Ku Hale in Haleiwa. She was an owner/member of the Gallery at Ward Centre, Hawaii’s premier cooperative gallery, for fourteen years until its closing in May 2015. On Maui, Susie is represented by Maui Hands and Kaukini Galleries. Her fine art reproductions can be found in many galleries island wide.
