Susan's Art Cards

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
—John Keats

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, photographing with permission of the gallery at times. The museums where Susan has studied original works include those in Russia, Italy, France, Japan, the USA, and other places. Her work hangs in a variety of places such as Russia, Holland, Albania, Japan, Palestine, Australia, Thailand, Italy, Colombia, Sweden, Bhutan, the USA, and in the children's room on the Peace Boat.

Art Studies: Denison University, Indiana University, San Francisco State University, and private classes.

Two fine art prints are still available. Each print, and the certificate of authenticity, is individually published and signed. For more information on the history and production of giclée prints go to: giclée printing.
