Susan began her art education in high school and received a scholarship to the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Her love of technical illustration and her interest in drawing, design and colour became the focus in her work. Watercolour was the primary medium in her early work. Susan has painted professionally since 1988 when she began showing and selling her work in Ottawa. With the encouragement of her teacher and mentor, she entered her first juried show and received the Award of Excellence and Jurors Choice Award for the the two works she entered. Later, she became a Fellow of the Ottawa Watercolour Society. Upon moving to Oakville in 1990, she joined the Central Ontario Art Association, Oakville Art Society, Colour and Form Society, Burlington Fine Arts, Society of Canadian Artists, Visual Arts Mississauga, Oakville Arts Council and The Image Matrix Printmakers Group. Susan has had her work juried at Oakville Galleries, Mississauga Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Burlington, Art Gallery of Hamilton and by Museum London Art Rental and Sales program. Her work has been rented and sold at these venues since the early nineties. She was a gallery artist at Maclaren Barnes Gallery for many years.
Susan has found her own unique way to bring her vision to paper using printmaking technique, watercolour, acrylic, oils, inks, crayon, pastel, paper, wood, fibre, beads, collage and canvas. She enjoys the exploration of new ideas when she is creating in her studio.
Susan appreciates each and every time her work is admired and has enjoyed the receipt of numerous local and regional awards.
