Susan was born and raised in small towns in central Utah and lived in that state most of her life. Spring of 2008 she moved to the Tucson, Arizona area. She’s just a country kid at heart, and because of that, her art subjects turn more and more to those rapidly vanishing country sights that bring a nostalgic feeling of simpler times.
Though Susan has worked with a wide variety of art materials, her favorite medium is watercolor. Its challenge and diversity fascinate her. She uses rich color, dramatic lighting, and the visual effects of texture in her art. She focuses on finding beauty in the ordinary . . . even things which have been cast aside or abandoned . . . things we would not usually consider an art subject. A close up look at old rusty farm equipment or automobiles of days gone by is the subject of much of her work. Susan wants to tell their stories of a time of usefulness and contribution.
