Artist biography: Self-taught artist Sue Krzyston developed her techniques with the influence of Dutch masters, drawing from their use of chiaroscuro and layering of many thin glazes of paint to achieve light-filled scenes. She is known for creating traditional still-life compositions with the Native American Indian artifacts that she collects from her native Arizona. Krzyston "believes that these objects represent the 'soul' of the people who create them." She has held numerous exhibitions, was commissioned for the Washington DC offices of the Arizona Senators and Congressmen, and has been voted one of the "Top 50 Female Western Artists" at the Desert Caballeros Western Art Museum.
