I am Susan Metcalfe, and I split my time between my studio in Wimberley and San Antonio, where I've lived for over 40 years. I grew up loving visual arts, and received an art degree from Baylor University. After a couple of years as a graphic artist, I entered the corporate business world and raised a family. ln 2012, I retired and rediscovered my love of painting. My primary medium is encaustic (tinted melted beeswax and resin) but I also enjoy cold wax mixed with oil paint, as well as collage and acrylic. I'm fascinated by light and shadows and find the rugged Texas hill country a beautiful place to have a studio.
