Art @ Blue Springs

We are big fans of artist Susan Elizabeth Ashurst (formerly Sue Mckibben), here at Blue Springs Home.  

Artists Bio-Susan Elizabeth Ashurst (SEA)

The British-Born artist began drawing with grandfather on a small farm outside of Leamington Spa, England.  Inspired by summers spent in the South of France, Kauai and Mexico she learned to depict the naturalism of her subjects using painterly strokes and a resonant palette.  She further defined her artistic talents under the influence of renown artist John Paul Jones, while receiving her bachelor's degree in studio art from the University of California, Irvine.  Her works are in organic pigment watercolor, oil and acrylic.  Surfaces include canvas, recycled wood and japanese cloth wallpaper.  Susan divides her time between North san Diego county and Playa Los Cocos in Nayarit, Mexico.

We'll be showcasing her latest collection of beach-scapes in the coming weeks and will be announcing a special art show and installation here at Blue Springs Home that will feature her Orange County landscapes. We are so excited!
