Susan is a Canadian artist who was raised in Calgary. After graduating from the Alberta College of Art, she freelanced for several firms in Calgary but soon realized she wanted to focus on creating her own art. 

Immersed in the fine art community in Calgary, she began to draw inspiration from the variety of landscapes found in Canada. Her works are based on these beautiful locations.

Susan teaches various classes throughout British Columbia and looks forward to more international travel. Her talents include painting in watercolor, pastels, mixed media, and print making.
