  • Susan Martin at show at Hollis Taggert Gallery opening in New York City.
  • Here I am with Leaf Bird, an Honorable Mention Award winner in Treasure Coast Creates: A Tribute to Local Artists. Leaf Bird is one of my “visual poems” created using Staedtler Mars Lumograph Pencils on Arches 88 paper. The work will be on display along with 136 other artworks through September 15. I have to say it is an outstanding exhibit and I feel very fortunate to have a piece included in the show! 😁 #magicrealism #drawings #artsondouglas  #fantasy #verobeachartmuseum
