This weeks featured eclectic colorful artist on Dig and Hang is Susanne Kurwig, she creates magically beautiful colorful mix media prints that are inspired by nature, flowers, the sky, the sun and the wind. They have lovely textures, colors and patterns on them which add a lot of uniqueness and interest to a space, I really think that’s what caught my eye. The colors are all so vivid and bright, but the lovely details she places into each piece such as scratching the paint, adding a different layer of paint to another and the use of floral inspired stamps really makes the art pop. She was kind enough to answer some interview questions and share her art space with us along with some of her beautiful work. If you’re not yet following her, be sure to, she has a lovely feed on Instagram and a wonderful website where you can purchase her work to hang in your home.
I rent my first studio in 2003. It took 4 years before I started selling my art and joined art shows. I also visited an art school in evening classes and did workshops.
How would you describe your home decor style?
I paint floral impressions. My work is inspired by nature, my garden, the sky, the earth, the sun and the wind. Stimulated by flora I abstract these natural impressions into color-intensive, dynamic surfaces and combine those with filigree forms and structures.
What inspires you when you get in a rut?
I paint floral impressions. My work is inspired by nature, my garden, the sky, the earth, the sun and the wind. I am an intuitive painter. I connect to my creativity and let it flow.
What colors do you enjoy using in your art the most and why?
I like blues and turquoise colors as the water and the skye. Also pink, purple they bring energy and movement in the painting. And paynes grey it gives a nice and not to hard contrast.
