Susan Tompkins is was born and raised in the New York/New Jersey area. She now lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Her  artwork has been exhibited internationally.

"My imagination is fueled by a broad range of aesthetics : Asian, African, and ancient European sculpture, or the mixed media approaches of artists such as Henri Matisse, and Robert Motherwell.  I enjoy deconstructing materials and reconstructing them to form my images.  Each piece incorporates different materials such as watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, crayon, inks, torn paper or found objects.   I enjoy the unexpected results of how some materials  spontaneously blend, resist, pool, bleed or absorb.  The process of much or my work is derived from the unconscious  or moments of reflection.   I create as a form of meditation , catharsis, and a dedication to those who have inspired me."
