Biography



 
Susan Mayfield
 
Susan Mayfield is an award-winning artist known for her use of color and light in her pastel and oils. She was raised in the semi-tropical Lowcountry of South Carolina, a watery landscape dominated by rivers, creeks and marshes, where she lived until moving to Salida, Colorado in 2007. Salida is a gem of a historic small town, with diverse geography-high mountain desert, rocky canyon walls where the Arkansas River has carved its path, and alpine terrain in the 14,000 ft mountains that surround the valley, where Mayfield finds endless inspiration for her work. Her travels take her back often to the Southeast where she teaches workshops and paints plein air and touches base with her roots. 
 
 After graduating with honors and receiving the Outstanding Fine Arts Student Award from the College of Charleston, Mayfield continued her studies with prominent artists from around the country. Her career has included solo and group exhibits in galleries such as the Wells Gallery and the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, SC, the Joyce Robins Gallery in Santa Fe, NM, The Red Piano Gallery in Hilton Head, City Art Gallery in Greenville, NC, among many others. Her paintings have been chosen for the Art in Embassies Program, and her work is included in many corporate and private collections. She, along with artist Stephen Smalzel, opened the Smalzel Mayfield Art Gallery in 2012 in Salida, Colorado.
