Susan as an artist, considers herself a watercolorist, although she teaches in multiple mediums. She is fascinated by the challenge of watercolor media, approaching every painting as an experiment. The original paintings on the website have been done in watercolors. Susan also paints in acrylics, oils and pastels. Watercolor has been by far the most challenging medium for her to work in; unable to control the many factors that affect the drying time, and how the paint reacts with the water and paper. Susan continues to be drawn to watercolor and finds the end results truly rewarding.

Susan enjoys portraying realistic wildlife, songbirds and skyscapes in vibrant shades of watercolors. She is always drawn to paint with high contrasts of lights and darks, creating intense drama with vivid and bold colors. She is thrilled to share her passion with you and is hopeful you enjoy her work.
