Susan Raab

I grew up playing with color, paint and textile design in my family’s business. I watched my father, who trained at the Art Students League explore art techniques that ranged from cartooning to oil painting; antiquing furniture to designing models and miniatures; and later doing architectural pen & ink renderings.

I was always drawn to the artists who did metalwork, jewelry, textile and abstract painting. My career path led me into children’s publishing, which combines my longtime love of literature and the chance to be surrounded by beautiful artwork. Some of my favorite opportunities have been to own original artwork from artists I’ve promoted. I’ve also always done my own art work – fiber art, quilting, embroidery and other textile design. Fiber art, clay and mixed media are bringing this together for me in exciting new ways.

One thought on “My Art

  1. Susan, I enjoyed meeting you last evening at the Art’nBusiness/PhilaChamber gathering… your abstract textile work is pretty fascinating! I especially like Pathways to Peace. It looks like Catching Flowers may have some really interesting texture, hard to discern online, as so many things are…
    I wish you well in your pursuits, hoping to run into you again sometime.
