Susan n. jarvis

Where most people would see a carton of eggs or a fidgety toddler, oil painter Susan N. Jarvis sees a story, brimming with life and meaning. Her stunning work conveys these stories visually through vibrant colors and rich textures.

Born and raised in Utah, Jarvis expressed her artistic tendencies early. As a two year old, she created her first masterpiece in red lipstick on her mother’s white chenille bedspread. While it didn’t quite receive the praise the young artist hoped for, Jarvis persisted in developing her interest in the arts. 

Jarvis continues to paint her joyful narratives and teach oil painting classes and workshops. She feels that her mission as an artist is to create quiet, restful work by combining traditional painting with a nontraditional view of her subjects.
