Facilitator Biography

Susan Brereton |LiveWell Faculty
Susan joins us from the Southington Community Cultural Arts (SoCCA). Her passion is creating art and her first love is teaching art. Brereton works in a realistic style, focusing on color and composition. Flowers, portraits, and Maine scenes are among her favorite subjects for her oil, pastel, and watercolor paintings. For the past few years she has concentrated on children’s and pet portraits. She says, “I try to capture their innocence and beauty by using color to focus on their expressions and eyes.” Using a unique color palette, her portraits emit an inner glow and freshness. She juxtaposes warm and cool colors, often using an under painting of purple, to add depth, volume and warmth. Brereton continues to experiment with her style. She was inspired to go in a new direction, painting with a large 12-inch palette knife, using bold stokes of color and form. She plans to continue painting in both styles but her focus will always be on the qualities of life, vitality and beauty. Brereton teaches an oil painting class at SoCCA.
