Susan received a B.A in philosophy from Lake Forest College, but early on, while she was finishing her studies as a young mother, she took a few art classes. She spent time as a teacher and then a life-altering illness changed her whole perspective and painting became her focus. Concentrating on watercolor, she was honored with a place in the Permanent Collection of Very Special Arts of Wisconsin in 1994 & 1998.
After moving to Colorado and taking a workshop with Fran Dodd, she became enamored with pastels. It was then that spontaneity became a characteristic of her style. Color is her love and the way it is possible with the stroke of a pastel stick.
Susan lives in the charming Patti Jewet area in the heart of Colorado Springs.
