As a pilgrim in art and in life, Susan considers each of her paintings as an opportunity for exploration and experimentation. Inspired by her own travels and the innovative spirit of the Post-Impressionists and Expressionists, she works in acrylics, oils, and watercolor.
Through both her abstract and representational work, her desire is to both understand form and color and to create an emotional connection with the viewer.
Susan studied studio art at Messiah College, graduating in 2007. She has exhibited work in the wider Harrisburg area since the late 1990s. She and her very supportive husband live near Dillsburg, Pennsylvania.
