Susan Frech-Sims

I am an artist in NW Oklahoma. I attended OSU and graduated with a BFA. In 2013 I opened up my working studio and gallery to paint full time. I have since placed 3rd in The International Artist's Magazine, landscape division. Made it in as a finalist in The Artist's Magazine Annual Art Competition for a landscape. I have a page in The Strokes of Genius 8th Ed. hardback book for one of my pet portraits. Just to name a few. I am so blessed that I get to paint everyday. I realized in 2018 that most of the art I was doing was commissioned art and going right out the door. Since most competitions require the artist to have taken the reference photo I can't even submit to them. I decided I was going to have to have my own design line. I have always loved fairies, fairytales, and fantasy, and so I decided to create my own Faerie art. Mostly right now I am concentrating on what are known as Will-o-the-Wisps and they appear at night. I love painting details and florals as well so I can keep doing what I am passionate about while having a more marketable art line. I need to be able to use my imagination and be creative which isn't usually possible with commission works, where someone brings me a photo and I paint it. It has honed my skills though and I have enjoyed doing them, but need to do my own thing too! I hope people will see in my faeries something that appeals to them, calls to them, just like the Will-o'-the-Wisps in the tales beckoned people to follow them wherever they may lead them. Follow me on this new and exciting adventure!
