Clara 'Susan' Beym likes to interpret the beauty of nature in bright colors, bold brush strokes and is very influenced by Impressionism. Susan has shown her work at local libraries and the Ocean County Court House and local galleries in Island Heights, Stockton, and West Windsor, NJ. She is an active member of Ocean County Artist Guild, West Windsor Arts Council, Artists of Bristol and Garden State Water Color Society. While preferring to paint in watercolor, Susan enjoys occasionally painting in oil, and is also pursuing pastel painting. Photography has always been a favorite passion and helps to keep her inspired. In her spare time, you will find her exploring the lovely coastal wetlands on foot and bicycle in the beautiful areas of Bayville with a camera in hand, or painting plein air on the beach. Although Susan's coastal home was recently flooded and had to be demolished, she hopes to be back in her neighborhood painting the Jersey coast soon.
Susan is employed as a an award winning graphic designer in Princeton, NJ. Her paintings have been published on magazine covers and used for posters and marketing materials. She paints commissioned house portraits. Susan paints mostly landscapes of coastal areas and natural areas that surround her homes in Hamilton Twp NJ and Bayville’s coastal area of the Barnegat Bay.
