Susan has spent most of her summers since childhood on Cape Cod. Now a professional landscape painter, the tranquil beach scenes, sparkling waters and wind-swept dunes that have caught her artist's eye throughout her lifetime figure prominently in her impressionistic oils and pastels.
After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in textile design from the Rhode Island School of Design, Susan worked as a freelance fiber artist, but in 1990 she took up painting professionally.
A Copley Artist, Susan paints full-time at her studio in Stoughton, Mass., and at her summer cottage on the Cape, creating colorful, peaceful works that have won her Signature membership in the Pastel Society of America and a place in such juried shows as the American Artists Professional League (Salmagundi Club) in New York City, Signature 2003 at the Cape Museum of Fine Arts and the Hudson River Valley Art Association in New York. In addition to the Copley Society of Boston, she is a member of the American Artists Professional League, the Cape Cod Art Association and the South Shore Art Association.
