Susan Hable is described like an artist:
“Inspired most by the daily walk through her garden to her backyard studio. Along with this and her travels to Italy, Asia, and South America, her mother’s pressed flowers, family, community, and light all play a huge role in her work. Natural elements and textures cultivated from her everyday experience make their way into her large watercolor, ink wash, and dye paintings on paper.
Growing up in Corsicana, Texas, Susan has always drawn inspiration from her surroundings, culminating this into an aesthetic that marvels at wonder and is curious about detail, space, and color. A recent transplant from New York City to Athens, Georgia, the transfer from the Big Apple to this small college town has influenced her painting practice even more. The quiet Susan finds in her rescued and refurbished 1800’s millhouse has inspired her to pursue these investigations further into the mystery, essence, and presence of the natural world as well as the abstraction of the line.
With an education in fine art with collage, sculpture, welding, drawing, printmaking, and painting, Susan is internationally recognized by her sensibility with color and form and is on the board of The Color Association of the United States. Susan is also the artist and designer behind the boldly colored and hand drawn patterns of Hable Construction, a 15 year old design firm that she created with her sister to produce colorful and contemporary textiles with a classic feel.” (Source: susanhable.com )
