Susan Shipley is an abstract painter. She paints spontaneously. While enjoying the work of many abstract artists, she finds that the consistency and sameness, while calming, offers little surprise. She prefers to work spontaneous using dramatic colors in a dynamic fashion. The end results fall in the category of abstract expressionism.  Rather than providing calm, she prefers to provoke an immediate emotional response.  A short while ago, she fused and slumped glass creating 3 dimensional work; however, of late she just paints. She received a Ph.D. later in life and practices psychology in the schools with children. Susan is a Baby Boomer and a happy grandma.

Bouton creates unique engravings and etchings as well as installations, paper clothing, collages, and artist books. Color and textiles have been influential on Bouton’s work as they bear witness to the passage of time and lives lived. Echoing the actions of day-to-day life imprinted on textiles worn, Bouton’s prints yield a distressed, layered, and complex visual language. Creating her own singular and unique approach to engraving and etching, her work is monochromatic, but weaves in a palette of color not achievable through other means. With this singular technique, the work maintains her artistic voice while integrating all the stories, landscapes, and buildings of her ever-changing environment.
