Susan Lukas has been a professional photographer and graphic designer since 1978. Her digital images evolved out of a combination of both disciplines and use her artistic sensibilities in a new medium. When she is at the computer she’s not always sure how an image will turn out. Like a jazz musician who improvises with music, she invents new images with her original photos and Photoshop. She likes the creative freedom that the computer has given her work. It's a tool that has provided her with challenges and pleasure as she pursues her artistic goals.
A Wisconsin native, Susan started exhibiting at art shows in Wisconsin and Illinois in 1988 and has won many awards for her work. Her most prestigious award is Grand Prize, 2008 Wisconsin Trails magazine photo contest for “Raindrops”. In 1998, she designed and successfully sold a poster called Wisconsin ABCs for the state's sesquicentennial celebration. It was also her 10th year exhibiting her work through Window to Wisconsin, her business.
Susan has taught photography to adults in metro Milwaukee since 2003: first at Oak Creek/Franklin Community Education for many years, then one on one to adults. She taught one semester at UW-Milwaukee’s Continuing Education program. She still teaches at various locations in the metro Milwaukee area.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire with a degree in Journalism and almost a major in art, she has continued her studies with classes in desktop publishing and at various workshops. View her images on her Web site at www.susanlukas.com.
