Susan Winget Biography
Watercolor images by Susan Winget depict her heartfelt love for the values of
traditional rural life. Her charming themes, classic color schemes, and country
quilt motifs are a natural extension of her personality and vision as an artist.
She captures the timeless nostalgia of her own environment: ducks splashing in the pond,
cows bowing their heads in the pasture, and with paint and paper, is able to share
it with others.
The award-winning watercolorist captures lifestyles and values that seem to belong
to another time. She portrays a world where peace, harmony, and serenity still reign - a world
of porch swings, ponds, ponies, and picket fences, of teacups, teddy bears, red barns,
ripe apples, and favorite things all on a shelf.
After graduating from UNC at Chapel Hill with a fine arts degree, Winget got a job
painting watercolors for furniture stores, galleries, and gift shops. After having
children, she decided to paint at home and continued selling her work to the same
market. From watercolors in 1982, the business grew into greeting cards, calendars, and
other stationary items. Since then, Susan's look has spread to ceramics, rugs, wallpaper,
puzzles, fabric, and for the first time - posters, which are published by Sagebrush
Winget is a serious artist, deeply committed to her art home, and her family. Although
she credits her family and friends with providing the encouragement, support, and inspiration
for her work, it's her unwavering dedication that contributes most to her success. Her advice
for aspiring artists is to "Stick to you own style. Be who you are."
