Chicago Studio


Born in Chicago in 1955, Sue joined Arts of Life in December 2013.

Susan is a dreamer and a visonair. Fascinated by color, shapes and organic forms Pasowicz uses color pencil to create whimsical compositions that reflect her dream like state.  Looking at everyday life her work adds hints of her surroundings that become tangled in the web of forms that worm on her 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. I think about things in my head and as it comes 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 people’s 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 kid.”
