Suzanne Hauerstein's Profile

About

I am currently concentrating on two bodies of work. A nature inspired series which includes insects, avian and botanical subject matter and a mixed media series inspired by home life and childhood memories in which I incorporate vintage fabrics and wallpaper. Much of the fabric I use in my paintings has come from a collection of vintage handkerchiefs and aprons that I inherited from my maternal grandmother who was a great inspiration to me.

To tell my stories in a more universal language I choose to use vintage imagery which is immediately recognizable. To create one of my paintings I search through hundreds of lithographic images to find the ones I want to use to tell a certain story. I deconstruct these images and recombine them to form original compositions which I print onto an encaustic or bees wax surface.
