From her studio in a one-hundred-year-old house she restored in the historic district of Downtown Temple, Texas, Susan is creating images of the things she loves using oil and canvas.
A graduate of the University of Texas in Austin with a degree in fine art and graphic design she has been painting and drawing from a very early age. Plein air, studio work, and commission work are a part of her art journey, and she especially enjoys painting animals. Retired from a 30-year graphic design career she teaches art and workshops and works as a freelance graphic designer and photographer. She can also be found hosting guests at the Airbnb located upstairs above her studio that she owns and operates. Click to view the Airbnb.
Whenever she has a chance, you will find her enjoying nature, painting outdoors, biking, fishing, kayaking, or simply enjoying playtime with her miniature dachshund, Sophie, all the time scouting for the perfect location for her next Plein Air Creation.
Art is a visual love language that helps me communicate the importance of the people, animals, places, landscapes, and experiences in my life. As I paint and draw, it teaches me about the gift of life and what God is presenting to me. It is my way to share what I see and experience.
