about

Susan-1.jpg

I use oil paint to narrate stories in a traditional, representational style.  It is as if I am always looking into, or through, to another view or another part of our world.

I paint everyday images that are in our working lives by taking mental pictures and inventories of my experiences and surroundings.  I record life's imagery.

The intersection of art and psychology drive my creative process, especially the work of scholar Joseph Campbell and his epic code, the Hero's Journey, and The Quest to find the repeatable patterns in the cycle of our lives.  

I earned my BFA at the University of California, studying with the renowned artist Wayne Thiebaud.
