My name is Susan Evenson, and I am a freelance artist and illustrator. I have been an art kid from the beginning, and attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago to pursue my BFA in painting and drawing. I work in ink, watercolor, gouache and pencils of all kinds. I have been exploring meditation and yoga for several years, and I am always looking for ways to weave these practices together with my art making. I enjoy painting, drawing in sketchbooks, making dream maps, and making collaborative paintings with my daughter. I love playing with the most vast and mysterious universal questions, while looking at the plainest and simplest facts, with honesty, humor and heaps of curiosity. Editorial illustration, surface pattern design, illustration for home decor items, and book illustration are some of my very favorite things. I am currently living and working from my studio in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.
I can also be found here: susanevenson.com for all photo art direction and styling work.
If you have a project you'd like to discuss, please get in touch. Thank you!
Some of my clients include Spirituality & Health Magazine, Sweet Paul, Palm Springs Style and Quarry Books.
