Something in the Air


Studio Member since 2013

Born in Chicago in 1955, Sue is a dreamer and visionary. Fascinated by color, shapes, and organic forms Pasowicz uses colored pencil to create whimsical compositions that reflect her dream-like state.  Looking at the everyday, her work incorporates hints of her surroundings which become tangled in the web of forms created by wispy, worm-like marks that build up on the works’ surface. Often incorporating windows, doors, or portals, Pasowicz transports the viewer to a new environment.

“I usually draw houses, people, curly top trees, clouds, the future. I like watercolors, portals, and rainbows. As things come into my head, then I draw it on a piece of paper. I go to art talks to learn about other pictures if it is good or bad. I like seeing exhibitions so I can learn from other peoples’ artwork. I like when there are a lot of people at openings and they are interested in buying the paintings. I like to socialize with more people. I like painting. I like that it is colorful, more joyful like. I don’t copy off other things, I always draw out of my head, even as a kid.”
