Susan is a mixed media acrylic/collage artist from the South Okanagan, British Columbia. She is interested in exploring the sentimentality of the past and uses emerging techniques made possible by technology to express her vision.
With acrylic or oil paints she pushes the limits of art-making using new materials and the richness of personal and historical images in unexpected ways. Using acrylics, oils, or a combination of both, she likens her art to a ‘construction’ as she scrubs and scratches into the layers of images, textured papers, graphite drawings, canvas patches or fabric, to produce her natural and organic pieces.
Susan has an energetic interest in the world which is palpable in her art. She views her work as an ongoing process of self-examination and accepts no boundaries. An adventurous spirit, she says: “In my exploration of art, I look for versatile solutions to all challenges that are presented. I am not drawn to any one formula.”
Susan relocated from North Vancouver to the South Okanagan in 1996 where she owned and operated a winery for thirteen years. She lives among the orchards and vineyards of the valley with her husband, son and chocolate lab.
