|Susan Sales is a self-taught painter who began her art career more
than 25 years ago with the creation of two hand-painted pillows.
During the 1980's, living in Los Angeles, Sales painted a variety of
textiles and fine art while maintaining a full-time job in the real
estate development industry. In 1990, she headed for Santa Fe and
after twelve years of painting and developing her career there, she
moved to Dallas in 2004. She is most often associated with vivid
colorfields and lively abstract expressionist works all of which are
linked by her signature smooth, glossy surface. This technique which
she developed and mastered brings a lively, deep and inviting finish
to each painting. Her works are in corporate and private collections around the world and have adorned the covers of numerous magazines
including House Beautiful, DECOR and most recently the 2008 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. She
is currently represented by Telluride Gallery of Fine
Art, Telluride CO, Craighead Green Gallery, Dallas, TX, and M. A. Doran Gallery, Tulsa, OK.
