Description and artist statement for Susan Oomen’s upcoming exhibit of oil paintings.
Originally from the Kingston region, Susan Oomen now lives and works in the aptly named hamlet of Utopia, Ontario. An avid paddler, as well as painter, Oomen creates iconic works to capture the Canadian spirit of being out on the water in summer or looking out windows onto snow covered landscapes in winter. Her canvases immortalize the play of light on water and the serene tranquility of a winter’s day, creating an escape from the everyday.
