Calabash is thrilled to have teamed up with one of our greatest inspirations, artist Susan Clanton, to create our watercolor holiday cards and notepads. Although her main medium is oil, Susan expertly painted our watercolor motifs. Susan specializes in portraits and pet portraits but also creates landscapes, still lifes and pencils. Susan says,
"My paintings are an exploration of how to use color in realistic and expressive ways. In each piece, I am trying to capture a mood and arouse curiosity or evoke a feeling in the viewer."
There's nothing Susan can't paint, draw, bake or create and her unlimited creativity inspires us every day. Susan is also Anna Kate's mom and Anna Kate attributes her creativity and close attention to detail to growing up surrounded by her mom's artistic ability.
