Susan has worked in art throughout her life and much of her work reflects her own experiences along that journey.
In her studies of art history she realized that artists throughout history represented, in some way, the life and times they lived in – and they expressed their culture through their work. From the cave paintings to the most abstract of more recent times, art says something about life.
Throughout our lives we go through many changes as we grow – both good and bad. Most of Susan’s work relates to the memories of the diverse experiences she has had throughout her life. Some of her pieces, such as “Of Spirit Raped”, are so expressive that many people have very strong emotions when viewing it…
Her expression of fear, pain, sorrow, joy, solitude, and peace connect to most of us in some way through our past and present. This work touches the viewer, often very deeply, as it resonates with his or her own personal experiences. This is what Susan wants to portray in her art . . . life – both yours and hers.
Susan graduated with a degree in Liberal Arts from Sweet Briar College. She lives in Virginia and has two adult sons, a daughter-in-law and a precious grandson.
