Biography


Biography:
 

A Connecticut artist with roots in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Susan spent most of her childhood painting and drawing.  After a 20 year career as a speech pathologist, she returned to her love of painting full-time in 2000. She began to build a reputation as a  Bucks Country impressionist, frequently staying with family there to paint the beautiful countryside and stone houses along the Delaware River.  Since then, her roots have spread. Susan enjoys the diversity of painting in her home state of Connecticut: the changing seasons, the farms and fields, the antique homes, the woodland and the shoreline.  Painting the landscape en plein air (out of doors) is a passion, whether it is in her garden, in the historical district where she lives or the destination of her travels. It allows her to cultivate her paintings from life, and then to finish or create them in the studio.  Having vacationed in nantucket most of her adult life, she returns there often to paint the moors, the cottages, the sands and the sea, bathed in a light unique to the island. Flowers are a favorite and frequently the subject of the still life paintings she creates in the studio, as well as portraits and figures.
 
Most of Susan’s paintings are done in oil, but she also works with watercolor, gouache and pastel. Meditation is a daily practice and a part of Susan’s painting process.  Also a Reiki practitioner with Master Certification, Susan sometimes works with the intention of infusing a painting with healing energy. Susan began teaching in her newly built studio in 2018, and will be conducting a two day workshop in Nantucket in May 2020 to teach her meditative process for oil painting.
