About the Artist

Born in 1959, Susan Melrath (Redmond) grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia. Her dream was to become a freelancer illustrator. Upon graduation from a four year commercial art school, she set out on her own and before long her clients included IBM, Miami Herald, Simon & Schuster, and JC Penney.

In 1997, Susan moved to Seattle and took a sabbatical to raise her son. With no client or deadline, her focus shifted from content to shape, form and color. Her work blossomed. She began entering juried exhibitions in 2003 and has won several awards.
