Susan is an occasional plein air and mostly studio painter based in Cary, North Carolina. She began her career in advertising and graphic design, but once she picked up a paintbrush, she never put it down. Although she experiments in other media, oils are her medium of choice. Susan’s work focuses on the beauty of everyday; the things that touch us without us always realizing why. Having grown up in Charleston, she is always drawn to low country landscapes, and the people, flowers and beauty found within. The serenity and warmth of the southern coast – the fiery sunsets, the sweeping marshes, and imposing trees are forever her inspiration.
Susan is a signature member of American Women Artists and Women Painters, as well as a member of Oil Painters of America and The American Impressionist Society.
