About the Artist

Ms. Cruser, a long time Ewing resident, has long participated in Ewing Community activities with her husband Rich.   She began her artistic journey in 2014, with a desire to create a portrait of her beloved dog, Kobe.   She combined her two loves, animals and art to create custom colored pencil drawings for others.  Since then she has expanded to create one-of-a-kind mixed media pieces, all created in Paper Filigree.
A self-taught artist, she has exhibited her work and won awards in three categories or styles of art - drawing, recycled art and mixed media - in various shows and locations across Mercer County.  Among the recognition she’s received includes: an October 2018 Certificate of Participation award for representing Mercer County in the 52nd New Jersey Senior Citizen Art Show, in the Mixed Media Non-Professional Category; an August 2018 First Place Award in the Mercer County Senior Art Show, in the Mixed Media Non-Professional Category; an April 2018 3rd Place Award in the Trashed Art Contest held at the Lawrence Branch of Mercer County’s Library System; and an August 2017 Honorable Mention Award in the Mercer County Senior Art Show, in the Drawing Non-Professional Category.
