Paper (mulberry), encaustic, marbled fabric, thread
Sawsan Alhaddad immigrated from Iraq 40 years ago. She worked as an anesthesiologist and had no art training. She took up watercolor as a way to relieve stress. She has taken classes and workshops at the Cleveland Museum of Art, area art centers, at the Morgan and in other parts of the USA and abroad. She now works in watercolor, oils, pastels, encaustic, cold wax, paper making and ceramics.
Most of Sawsan’s artwork is representational. She enjoys plein air painting. The greatest inspiration is the play of light on objects. More recently she has been exploring abstract art in encaustic and oil with cold wax.
Sawsan Alhaddad has had 3 solo shows in area art centers and has had work accepted in juried shows in Cleveland & Akron.
