SUSAN AMONS BIOGRAPHY
Susan Amons is a master printmaker whose large-scale monoprints invite the viewer to explore a mysterious menagerie of long-legged birds, fearless crows, and roaming beasts. Birds inhabit many of her scenes, and like the willowy blue herons and egrets she depicts, her avian monoprints are graceful arrays of layered colors and ghosted shapes. The effect can be otherworldly.

“These are all major works by an artist with a singular and committed vision. . . . In Amons’ most fully realized works, the result is bewitching”
— Philip Isaacson, Maine Sunday Telegram

Amons, who uses monotype, drypoint, and Chine-collé, developed her unique combination of printmaking techniques while on fellowships at the Women’s Studio Workshop in New York, and the Heliker- LaHotan Foundation on Great Cranberry Isle in Maine, where she developed her Cranberry Island series.

Amons has been the recipient of numerous awards grants, fellowships, and Maine Percent for Art Commissions. Her work has been exhibited widely in countless solo and group exhibitions, and is in numerous private and public collections, including the New York Public Library, the University of New England, the art museums at Colby, Bates and Bowdoin, the Farnsworth Art Museum, and the Portland Museum of Art, among others.
