Susan Hubble Pitcairn (1949 — ) fuses inspirational poetry with her vibrant landscapes in oils, acrylics and pastels. Her images express both the particular and the universal.
Since moving to Sedona, Arizona in 2006 Pitcairn has produced a series of multi-media inspirational exhibits with paintings, poems and music. Her first volume of paintings and poems, "The Poetry of Place" (2009)  is a rare expression of the inner world of the outer landscape.

She writes eloquently about three core principles of art with parallels in music, architectural, performing arts, science, society, economics and virtually every aspect of inner and outer life.
