Artist finds expression in palette of powder coatings
A self-taught artist wields a spray gun instead of an artist's brush, using powder coatings to break artistic ground and render the masters in a modern light.
Susan Coughlan became an artist by working with a different kind of palette - powder coatings. She didn't start with temperas, evolve to oils, or dabble in watercolors. Instead, she met a man who developed powder coatings, a meeting that changed her life forever - she had met her husband. But she also found a new path that inspired her to leave a stable career and become an artist. For Coughlan, powder coatings were downright inspirational: "When I saw what the materials were and what Icould do with them, I had to start creating with them."
