WORKS ON PAPER : Scenes

"Susan White is constantly sketching from everyday life and it is from the many sketchbooks that she first extracts the material for her compositions." (A. Wernig, Munich, 1980)

The artist works in a variety of drawing media: pen and ink, ballpoint, brush, crayon, chalk, pastel, conté, and charcoal. Recently she has developed mixed media techniques in silverpoint and goldpoint.

"Capturing the essence in line alone is for me the purest form of expression."
