About Susanne, the Artist:
Love this saying by Fernando Botero...
"When you start a painting, it is somewhat outside you.
At the conclusion, you seem to move inside the painting."

Training and Education: While being primarily self taught, Susanne attributes much of her success to the valuable influence of the prominent artists with whom she has studied, combining their guidance with her dedication to developing her own style. Susanne has studied under Canadian artists Elizabeth Wiltzen, Nicholas Pearce, Dominique Walker, Cindy Mawle, Robyn Foster, Marilyn Ridsdale, and Michael Britton. "From the many talented and generous individuals who share their knowledge, I have learned so much and appreciate that among the great joys of art is the opportunity to never stop learning and exploring."
