it will never pass into nothingness.—John Keats

Amsterdam paintings

  Japan still life

(above and left) commissions of two brothers in Amsterdam, the Netherlands,and paintings inspired by time in India and Japan.

Although Susan loves sharing her international work and travel through art, she is mostly known for her portraits of children. Of all main genres, still life, landscape, abstract, and portraiture, painting portraits is the most challenging, and portraits of children the most difficult of all. It is this challenge that Susan loves. She occasionally accepts commissions. $3,000 - $4,000 for an 11" x 14" on linen.

CHILDREN'S PORTRAITS — to see some examples, only one left to purchass.


It is only with the heart that one can see clearly.
—Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Susan has studied art in some form or another since 1960. During her travels she sketches and photographs the people and scenes that inspire her the most, and upon her return combines them with her own memories, creating oil paintings in order to share her experiences with others. She haunts art museums wherever she goes, at times arranging travel around specific art shows, especially of the impressionists and post impressionists. In order to carefully learn from the great masters she sometimes paints studies of their work.

She has taught art appreciation and studio arts. Her work hangs in a variety of places including Moscow, Holland, Albania, Japan, Palestine, Australia, Thailand, Italy, Colombia, and Sweden, and throughout the USA.

Art Studies: Denison University, Indiana University, San Francisco State University, and ten years studying with the artist Michael in Eureka, California.
