An example of fine art by Susan Veum

Like every other artist, I loved to draw and paint as a child.  As I grew up, however, getting an education and earning a living became my primary focus.  I went to college for business and worked for various companies until my children were born.  Once they were old enough to start school, I began to study painting at the Minnesota River School of Fine Art in Burnsville, MN.   I studied primarily with Pat Jerde, learning the methods of the old masters.  I continue to study with Pat, who is Atelier trained, and now have a studio space in the former art school building.  I have entered pieces in a couple shows and have won some awards as follows:
2006:  Burnsville Art Fete - award of Merit, oil painting category
2010:  Minnesota State Fair - painting accepted to be shown at State Fair (I consider being accepted an award!)
2012:  Burnsville Art Fete - Peoples choice Award
2014:  Burnsville Art Fete - Jean Fournier Award
2016:  Burnsville Art Fete - 1st Place Oil/Acrylic Painting category
I enjoy trying to capture the beauty of everyday subjects - perhaps look at them in a different way than we are used to.   I generally paint in oils as I find the colors rich and easy to use.   Please take a look and enjoy!
