Susan Palmer Foust is a local Tulsa photographer who is originally from New York. Her professional career began with a series of photos taken while in a drive-through car wash. She had her first solo show at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center in Tulsa in 2013.
Her photos transform subjects from the “everyday” into new visions. Susan's goal is to try to use photography to renew people’s perceptions of the hidden beauty in their modern daily lives.
Her subjects begin with strong architectural, botanical and industrial works that are then morphed and saturated with color. Her art is on aluminum sheets which have a deep luminescence.
As a member of Alpha Tau Rho, Tulsa Artist’s Coalition, Living Arts, and OVAC, Susan is firmly planted in Tulsa and has been active in studio and gallery exhibitions in the region.
