Susan's paintings reflect the beauty and magic of the Smokey Mountains that surround her home. Her paintings could be described as realism through an artists eye. The nature of her work, collaging with paper or mica from the earth, or mixing media, pouring watercolor, all allows for free expression, play and experimentation. "It's like dancing in the freedom of creativity" Susan says..
Susan receives additional inspiration from traveling with her husband, kayaking the bright and beautiful waters of Michigan and Florida, walking among the trees and pathways of nature.
