Welcome! You've arrived at Susan Garriques' online gallery of art. Primarily an animal portrait artist, Susan's love for animals shines through in her paintings. In addition to her pet portraits, Susan paints wildlife and landscapes.
Sit back, relax and have fun exploring. You'll find her animal paintings and her landscapes from both the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina
and the Florida Keys here.
The painting on the right was awarded 2nd Place in the Toe River Arts Council's Fall Juried Show in October. Artists from 5 states participated in the exhibit, showing 80 pieces of art. Click here to see all the winners and read the judge's comments.
Earlier this year, Susan began her Baseboard Mice series.
Another "fun" project, each of the mice is an original oil painting painted on a "mouse hole". Not satisfied with just painting the mice, Susan has also written a story about each mouse. The Baseboard Mice are available for "adoption" for a very reasonable "adoption fee". The mice have their very own website (www.baseboardmice.com) and their very own blog (www.baseboardmice.blogspot.com).
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy exploring!
