Suzan Wolters .Suzan is a full time artist and has been for the past 25 years.
Suzan:”My love for working in clay is one of my most vivid childhood memories, I have been growing up with paint and clay, it was almost inevitable that I was being drawn to dedicate my live sculpting and painting. From my early twenties up to now I have been sculpting and painting, at first reproductions of antique dolls in porcelain, after that I sculpted infants in polymer clay and later my well known and recognizable happy plus-size woman in their full form.
I have always been enchanted with sculpts and paintings of big woman, in particulair happy ones, they are often so much more buoyant and graceful than thinner woman”.
Suzan received for her sculptings several prestigious prices at International art shows in New York. Her sculptings are collectible items in Japan, the USA, Australia, Russia and Europe.
“A few years ago my mother moved to a new house and asked me to paint her a big happy woman, I thought that would be a fun thing to do and a passion emerged….I was hooked!
Every time I am working on a painting I get ‘bewitched’ in putting together a voluptuous confident and happy female,it is a very fulfilling and gratifying experience.
I work mainly from live models, beautiful plus size woman with a positive image of themselves.
A ‘feel good’ mood and a smile is what Suzan is hoping for when people view her work.
Suzan Wolters admits to being a big fan of Beryl Cook
