Susan Gepford is an artist who is interested in color interactions, especially in studying the science of color perception. Color appears different under different types of light, it changes with different media, and it affects the mood of a piece through boldness or subtlety. In her work, she blends realism with expression and interpretation. This allows her to explore what she finds interesting about the shapes or colors of the original source material without making direct replicas.She works mostly in water-soluble oil paint but likes to experiment with many different media. Her largest stained glass commission can be seen in Drew University's Seminary Hall.
Susan Gepford has an MFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design as well as an AB from the College of William and Mary.
