A child of European Immigrants, (Mother escaping the Nazi's in Berlin, Germany and Father's family escaping from Romania), Susan Moss was born in 1944 in Chicago and began coloring at age two and has yet to stop. Color, light, gesture, space, transparency, has continually entranced her.
Collectors of her work number over 500 Worldwide including three Museums: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Laguna Art Museum, and the Skirball Art Center. Important Collectors like Robert A. Rowan, Joel Gilman, Blake Bryne, Roy Disney, Fred Sands and the Chandler family have been drawn to and acquired her work.
Susan Moss is also an Author and has written three books: two on the self-healing of Cancer. Her first book, "Keep Your Breasts!" is in three languages and sixth printing. It is published in English, German, and Dutch and gave her a trip to Europe to lecture. Her second book, "Survive Cancer!" was chosen to be presented in Glasgow, Scotland and her lecture filmed by the BBC. She also wrote a thriller, "The Accident Stager."
The new work, "Homage to Color," is painted on Birch panels using a new Organic linseed oil that she and a company in Canada, OmegaArt devised. No fumes are ever encountered in the use of this new medium. Her love of color, encouraged by her Mother, Amy Moss, shines through transparent layers.
Susan Moss is in great health and painting everyday after healing herself of breast and uterine cancer twenty-six years ago.
