Suzy Schultz

Suzy 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 and taught high school for 4 1/2 years. Taking a leave of absence, she spent a year overseas with Campus Crusade’s Short-Term International program in Poland. On returning, she did some part-time graphic design work for Mission to the World, 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 1996, and has won many awards for her work. Schultz is the winner of the Gold Award from Watercolor Magic magazine’s Watermedia showcase (chosen from 2,400 entries), and was featured in their August 2006 issue. Her work has also received an Honorable Mention in the portrait category of Artist’s Magazine’s 2001 issue (out of 13,000 entries), and was featured in the Spring 2006 issue of Drawing magazine. She has also had work published in art books by Rockport Publishers and International Artist Publishers, and recently had work featured in “Strokes of Genius II”, Northlight Publishers. She has taken classes/workshops with Alex Powers, Arne Westerman and Marc Chatov. She also hosts weekly open life drawing sessions at her studio . Suzy lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia.
