Aswoon / Susan Woods

I am an artist and sculptor. I make many kinds of sculptural objects that span the realms of fine art, design and the decorative/applied arts. Each of these fields are imbued with what I know of the 3rd dimension and beyond, and each retains their portion of reality. Coming from the classical world, I use the figurative in everything I make- the dynamics, the rhythms, depth of field, nuances, discipline- the abstractions. I draw from life as well as compose….and I draw on paper. I work for the trade, sell to private clients and through galleries. I am also a private teacher.
