Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas
Susanne was born and raised in Ontario and in 2007 moved out to Vancouver Island with her husband. After 30 years of not painting, she picked up the paint brush. While being primarily self-taught, Susanne enjoys learning new techniques through art courses with prominent artists. Her medium is acrylic and she paints daily in her home studio. Currently she is working on new subject matter with the continuous goal to develop her own style. She also returns to her love, pet portraits.
She has exhibited in numerous group and juried exhibitions. Her work is held in private collections across Canada, the United States, England and Ireland.
Susanne uses the paint brush as a tool to tell the story of a beloved pet, landscape, figure or still life. Her goal is to capture the mood or personality of her subjects and to create a painting that you will cherish forever. As you will see she emphasizes detail in her paintings and brings the subject to life. Susanne captures a feeling or that fleeting moment in time using light, shadow and colour.
Having a passion for art has enabled her to present a variety of subject matter, allowing you the luxury of purchasing your very own "Island" original.
Susanne is an Active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Arrowsmith and Nanaimo Chapters, as well as an Associate Member of the Society of Canadian Artists.
