Artist Biography

A local award-winning artist, Susan creates bold and expressive paintings with acrylic and mixed media. The energy of nature is explored in her paintings of birds, flowers and landscapes. Exploring the outdoors and taking photos of nature and structure are used as inspiration. Composition and a loose impressionistic style are important to help bring life to the subjects, and depth and movement into her work.

Susan attended the Academy of Art, in San Francisco after high school and continued taking workshops to further her interest in painting, drawing, stained glass and mosaic. A professional career of over 25 years as a graphic designer, helps composition and color stand out in her art.

In the last few years, she has had time to concentrate on painting and realized how much joy the process of creating art brings. Her impression of nature with bold colors and shapes each represent a moment in time.

Susan is a member of Artists in Action, Salem Art Association, Hallie Ford, and Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. She is a part of ArtMarks, a local critique group and a previous member of Red Raven Gallery. She has had solo and group shows in the Salem area and has been honored with several awards.
