“All my life I have been fascinated by the ever-changing dynamics of our American West. Through my work I strive to portray the many cultures that have come before us with dignity, respect and understanding. From the ancient cliff dwellers, to the cowboys that rode the range, my subjects reflect the West I’ve researched and lived. I’ve always felt if you do what you know and love your statement will be pure and unhampered the feeling will shine through.” —Susan Kliewer
