A born painter, Susan Firestone has a passion for painting with oils and sculpting horses in bronze. With every work, she strives to use light and color to capture the eye of viewers. Susan’s earliest inspirations are drawn from her upbringing in Pennsylvania and she began to master her technique as an art studio major at the University of Virginia. A western transplant since 1980, Susan now splits her time between the rugged desert of Arizona and the towering mountains of Colorado where she loves to paint plain air. A lifelong equestrian, Susan is inspired by long trail rides and horse shows where she has a natural ability to translate a horse’s complex lines and movement into her sculpture. Susan has exhibited in galleries in Arizona, Colorado, New York, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Virginia.
