Susan, a Canadian artist, was raised and spent considerable time in Toronto, the Cobourg/Grafton area as well as Georgian Bay-Pointe au Baril. Many of her paintings are inspired by these locations. “Winter is a favourite season - being born in December must have influenced that...I have a feeling I entered this world on a snowy day. I love the's pristine beauty, the wonderful, crisp freshness of the air - as well as the quiet - you find only in winter.” Her skaters, bathers, angels and dancers are all studies of movement and light, capturing the joyful exuberance of life ... “Joie de vivre”. Her portraits reveal the spiritual elements of the individual and their unique character.

Susan paints in oil and acrylic. Lighting and acute sensitivity capture the mood of her work. Her printmaking is colourful, playful and witty - her line drawings - classical to lyrical. Her works are housed in many National & International private collections.
