Suzy Schultz is an award-winning artist who works in the mediums of watercolor, oil, intaglio and graphite. Schultz has little formal art training, but was exposed to art at an early age through her mother, who is a painter. She graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Mathematics Education and taught high school for 4 1/2 years. Taking a leave of absence, she spent a year overseas in Poland. On returning, she did some part-time graphic design work for a local missions agency, and was eventually hired to help with their publications. There she was mentored and nurtured in her artistic talent, and encouraged to paint for illustrations used in the magazine. When her mentor and boss left to go on the mission field six years later, she was told she needed to leave her job and paint full time, which she did.
She has painted full-time since 1995, and has won many awards for her work. Her work has been featured in American Art Collector, Drawing, and Watercolor Magic magazines. She has also had work published in art books.
Suzy lives, works and teaches life drawing in Atlanta, Georgia.
