Born and currently residing in Cleveland, Ohio, Susan Squires attended Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. She received her B.F.A. from Cleveland Institute of Art in 1983.
Subsequently, Squires studied art and art history in Italy with the University of Georgia and the University of Texas.
Since 2002, Squires has been affiliated with the Arte e Pensieri Gallery in Rome, Italy. She also has work in
Spoleto, Perugia and Pisa. Susan travels extensively and dances Argentine Tango. She is currently represented by 1point618 Gallery in Cleveland,OH.
Squire’s encaustic/mixed media works are typically quiet meditations with psychological and spiritual implications. Her influences range from literary and musical passages, current events, landscape space and growth forms to architecture, archetypical images and symbols and most recently geometric systems.
Both rational and intuitive, the pieces are “poetic” interpretations of subtle states of being. Addressing the mind/body/spirit continuum, Squires displays a deep reverence for the past, a desire to explore uncharted terrain, yet the work is confidently grounded in the present.
