About the Artist

Susan uses oil paint to narrate stories in a traditional, representational style.  She paints everyday images that are in our working lives by taking mental pictures of her experiences and surroundings.  Susan records life's imagery.   Being innately curious and industrious, Susan explores the patterns of our inner lives with these quick looks into the ordinary.  She uses the tenants of mythology from Joseph Campbell’s epic code, the Hero’s Journey, to identify the repeatable patterns in the cycle of our inner lives.  Susan’s BFA in Studio Art at UC Davis was coupled with a minor in Psychology.  The intersection of art and psychology still intrigue her.  In 2008, she also completed the two-year UW Certificate Program in Drawing & Painting.
