Susan Fellows is a lifelong artist living in Augusta, Kansas. As a fourth generation descendant of Kansas pioneers, the family farm near Abilene, which is still in the family, was an early and major influence on her work. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Drawing and Painting from Wichita State University, where she graduated Magna cum Laude with Departmental Honors. She also minored in Art History, Psychology, and Printmaking. She was a holder of the Clayton-Staples Scholarship and served as President of the WSU Painter’s Guild.
While raising two boys, she taught and lectured on art part-time and conducted drawing and paintings workshops at the Augusta Art Center and the Carriage Factory Art Gallery in Newton. For eight years, she served as the art teacher for West Wichita Homeschool Ministries and was a presenter for the Augusta Public Schools Picture Lady Program for five years.
Besides oil paintings, her body of work includes murals, pen-and-ink illustration, logo design, and art for T-shirts. Most recently, she painted an extensive series of worship art paintings for Hope Community Church in Andover which were also included in a gallery show at Inter-Faith Ministries in Wichita. Her paintings have appeared in a number of art galleries and venues in the Wichita area. Currently, she is represented by Gallery XII in Wichita and Phoenix Gallery in Lawrence and Kansas City.
