Zen Buddha, Spiritual Goddess, Meditation Paintings
Sue Halstenberg began her career working as a fashion illustrator for the Southern California department stores. A few years later she started her own business, accepting commissions for portrait and figure paintings in pastel and oil. One of Sue's paintings, “Victoria,” was featured on the cover of American Artist Magazine and the Pastel Society of America, in New York City, juried her into their national association as a “Signature Member.”
Well-known author Dr. Doreen Virtue asked Sue to paint five original portraits for the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards. A dozen of Sue’s paintings have been included in Dr. Virtue’s Hay House projects. Sue’s original pastel of “Lakshmi” (a Hindu Goddess) is in the collection of Dr. Virtue and now hangs in the healing room at her home.
Sue paints and teaches classes at her art studio in the beautiful Ojai Valley of California. Her original artwork is on display at art galleries in Ojai, Ventura and Santa Barbara, CA. Sue holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
