Susan  has been a working artist for more than 25 years. She was trained in Fine Arts and English Literature, graduating with a B.A. from St. Joseph's University followed by post-graduate study  at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.


Susan's flair for seeing the usual in unusual ways and her love of fine arts has followed her both through her career, in computer graphics, logo design, illustration,  as an art teacher and as a commissioned artist, and 5 time award winner at the Philadelphia Flower Show for artistic jewelry design.


Susan's paintings span a range between extreme detail and whimsy, with a special focus on how light turns everyday images into emotional vistas. She continues to accept commisioned work,  but with an effort to pursue a personal vision.
