Susan Eichner, Artist
Hand-Painted Furniture, Accessories and Art
Susan is primarily a self-taught artist, with an extensive background in clothing design and merchandising. She has lived in Taos, New Mexico for over 20-years.
Many years ago, Mary Shriver, owner of Country Furnishings of Taos gave Susan a few pieces of furniture and said, “I have confidence in you; paint whatever you like." Today, Susan’s hand-painted furniture, art, and accessories are still carried in Mary’s store and have been sold to customers all over the country.
Susan's hand-painted furniture has been featured in numerous publications, including The Albuquerque Journal, New Mexico Magazine, Country Magazine and Taos Magazine.
"I follow in the footsteps of many fine folk artists from the Southwest. Through my work, I pay homage to them, for their inspiration, and for helping me keep the artistry of hand-painted furniture and folk-art alive."
In addition to creating hand-painted furniture, original works of art and accessories, Susan also enjoys painting on numerous recycled items, customizing kitchen cabinets, and painting small murals.
