Susan was born in rural Northumberland, England, close to the Scottish border and the English Lake District. She was brought up with a love of country life that she captures in her paintings. After studying at Newcastle College of Art, she worked as a watercolor artist for Halcyon Days of London, which has the royal appointment as suppliers of objects d’art to Her Majesty the Queen. Each summer, Susan returns to England, where she spends time sketching scenes of English country life.
In 1981 Susan came to California where she now lives and works. She is a Signature Member of the California Watercolor Association and has studied under the late local artist, Jade Fon, as well as Tom Nicholas, Gerald Brommer, Betty Lynch, Frank Webb, Irving Shapiro, Leo Smith and Carrie Burns-Brown.
Susan loves strong dynamic colors and she enjoys challenging herself with complicated images and various textures. She has been invited to participate in national shows such as the San Diego Watercolor Society International exhibition, the Springfield Museum of Fine Arts exhibition in Massachusetts and the Sausalito Arts Festival.
Susan received the first place award in the California Watercolor Association’s twenty-fifth annual open watercolor exhibition. She has received numerous awards from various artistic institutions and her paintings are included in many private and corporate collections, including Kaiser Permanente’s and the City of Vacaville’s.
Susan’s most recent paintings reflect her love of her northern Californian environment and the local scenic beauty of Mount Diablo state park.
