Biographical Info

Susan Himmel is a watercolorist and mixed media painter who has been creating art in one form or another all her life. Himmel’s original focus was on three dimensional art, primarily pottery, jewelry, and wall hangings until 2006. That is when she fell in love with watercolors during a week-long workshop at Kripalu Center called, Painting and Yoga in the Berkshires. Himmel then immersed herself in drawing and painting classes at IS183 Art School and in regional workshops over the next few years. Always a keen observer of nature, Himmel finds inspiration for her work in the hill towns, the deep forests, wildflower paths, mountain lakes, river rocks and clouds, as well as in everyday objects. Lately she has been exploring the urban landscape, as well.

Her work has been featured in solo and group shows in galleries and non-traditional settings in the Northeast, especially in the Berkshires. Paintings hang in a number of private collections here and abroad.
