After years of living on the East Coast, Susan and her family packed up and moved West in 2004. But instead of pounding out paragraphs on a keyboard, Susan picked up her paint brushes and revived an old dream. Fifteen years later, she’s still making a mess in her studio. Susan’s work evolved from traditional oil painting to include encaustics and mixed media. Her subject matter varies as much as the northwest weather and includes abstracts, landscapes and figures.
