               Susan Koon was born Susan Greer in June of 1957 in Roanoke Va.   Her entire life she has been creating art. Some of her earliest memories are learning to create as a child.   Susan has always self-taught gleaming knowledge from books and videos as her interests changed.  Susan’s interests have morphed over the years from sewing to fiber arts and stained glass then back to her true love painting.  Painting has also morphed from pastels to watercolor and finally artist quality oil paints.  Susan learned about the mediums available and fell in love with the oils. 
               In 2007 Susan immersed herself completely in the Plein Air movement joining the Ocala Plein Air Painters through Plein Air Florida organization.  With the companionship of the other artists she grew as a painter.  The group held several shows over the years and became the official Plein Air group for Silver Springs State Park in 2012.  In 2011 Susan joined the re-established group Hogtowne Plein Air Painters of Gainesville, Fl. Through her contacts in this group Susan began participating in the local invitational paint outs.  Susan has painted in all the Santa Fe Springs paintouts including the Smithsonian sponsored Water Ways of America tour.  Susan has painted Kanapaha Gardens paint out from 2012 through 2016.  This paint out season has just started with the Springs of Santa Fe paint out.  Susan plans to continue to grow as an artist and contribute to the local art scene.
