about Susan Mayfield

Susan Mayfield is an award-winning artist known for using bold color and luminous light in her pastel and oil landscapes. A native South Carolinian and life-long resident of the Lowcountry, she moved to Colorado 15 years ago, splitting her time between life on the Carolina coast and her home in the high mountain desert of Colorado. Currently, she paints and teaches from her studio in the small mountain town of Salida, CO.

“I grew up and spent most of my life in the semi-tropics of the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a place surrounded by water, where the marshes, rivers, and swamps provided endless subject matter for my paintings. I moved to the high mountain desert of Colorado, another stunning location where water is more scarce, but its power is evident in every canyon and mountain range there. I am grateful to live in and paint in both of these incredible landscapes.”
