Artist Bio:

From the Prairies...to the West Coast...and Beyond

Born in the prairies, Susan spent some time in Edmonton and then later in Toronto where she managed a Graphic Arts company. She quickly became involved in the local ‘Art Scene’.


Back to the prairies in 2000 she started organizing and taking workshops while building her publishing career. She made the move to Vancouver Island in 2007. With her graphic arts background and her passion for the arts, Susan created the Island Arts Magazine. It is now into it’s 14th year and has gone virtual.


She makes her home in Parksville, where she teaches acrylic painting classes. She enjoys spending time with her husband Jeff and their dog Chace. She loves to garden and takes pleasure in backyard coffee dates with her friends.
