Susan Daul - Fraktur
Susan Soloway Daul, who grew up in the woodlands of New Jersey, has been drawing and painting since early childhood. She graduated from Meredith College, majoring in religion and biology. She has lived in the countryside of North Carolina for nearly 40 years with her husband, two cats and a dog. Old things have fascinated Susan all of her life. Her folk art has taken many forms over the past 30 years including wood and clay in addition to paintings.
It was a natural progression for her focus to fall on Fraktur, as their inspirational verses, charming use of animals and beautiful combinations of color proved irresistible the first time she saw one. Susan's creations have quickly become to collectors as appreciation for her work has spread far and wide, finding their place in various Museum Shops throughout the country, including Colonial Williamsburg, The American Folk Art Museum, and Winterthur, to name a few.
Susan sells original paintings as well as prints of her original work. A number of the prints may be personalized to recognize special occasions such as births, marriages and house blessings. She especially enjoys creating original works which are inspired by individual customer's visions.
