Susan LyonSusan Lyon grew up in Oak Park, Illinois. Her initial interest in art was sparked by a television show on Georgia O'Keefe. Lyon studied painting at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and was an active participant in Chicago's 100 year-old Palette and Chisel Club. It is there she first began exhibiting and selling her drawings and paintings; at twenty-three she was the youngest winner of the prestigious Gold Medal which she won two consecutive   years in the annual Oil Painting show plus a third place in the Silver Medal Watercolor show. She entered the Oil Painters of America show once   and got 7th place. In 1998 and 2000 she won an artist choice award in the Northwest Rendezvous Show. Susan draws much inspiration from   painters such as Zorn, Fechin, Sorolla, and Celia Beaux. Lyon's technique is to paint wet on wet to start and then wet on dry for her finishing   touches.
