Susan Tobey White defines herself as artist and educator.
As an artist she is best known for her colorful, energetic paintings of dancers, oversized vegetables and decadent food series. In contrast to the high-energy dancers her love of her home state of Maine is evident in her “quieter” paintings of figures, landscapes, lobstering scenes and florals. She welcomes commissions enjoying the challenges they offer. Her most common commissions include dancers, children at play, beach and boating scenes. She has created the images for the 2004 and 2007 North Atlantic Blues Festival Poster and The Maine Celtic Posters for 2008-2012.
As an educator she leads workshops in acrylic painting throughout the year. Having taught elementary art for 15 years she she has the ability to bring concepts to their simplest form. She recently gained the title of being a Golden Artist Educator through Golden Artist Colors, Inc. a prominent manufacturer of acrylic paint.
