Susan discovered her love for colored pencil artwork a bit later in life than some and is primarily self-taught. Not only is creating art a passion for her, but she believes it is also a calling. When asked about her process, Susan simply smiled and said, "God does it, but He lets me hold the pencils."

Susan's work can be found in homes across the US and Internationally and has been published in professional magazines. She offers original artworkas well as commission services. She also offers products such as prints, mugs, and notecards featuring her artwork.

Mission and Vision
Susan's mission is to inspire, encourage, and comfort others through realistic artwork that tells a story, captures a special moment, shares a memory, or sparks a dream. To create artwork that connects with and inspires others on a level that provokes thought and emotion is at the heart of her vision. Added to that is the desire to present the artwork in a style that is unique, recognizable, long-lasting, and in such a way that her joy in creating the work passes on to those who see the artwork.
