Boston native, Susan Wiggin Mueller, spent two decades as designer, writer and creative director for her boutique design firm/ad agency. In 2005 she answered the call* to be a messenger of God's redeeming love through the arts, as visual artist, devotional jazz vocalist and songwriter. In 2009 she joined her husband and tortoiseshell cat in the fertile farmland east of the Twin Cities where she is now blessed by the view from her barn studio on a hillside near the St Croix river, a majestic stand of 80 foot red pines, and more weeds than can possibly be subdued in their regrettably short growing season. Mueller is director of Agapé Arts llc, curator of STIR Contemporary Gospel Art Gallery, and the founder of the Institute of Gospel Art at Stillwater for equipping Gospel Artists.
The moment that Divine light pierces and dispels darkness is thematic in my narrative canvas works; the light of the Gospel heralding true and eternal hope, peace and joy, assurance of salvation, restoration, purpose and direction in trusting God, who has given us His Word: "Fear not, for I AM with you." I enjoy painting in response to sacred music as an act of worship, inspired by God's word, so that each piece tells the story of redemptive relationship and each story ends in perfect love. Original works in oil, encaustic wax and acrylic on canvas or panel. Fine giclee prints on archival paper.
