|Susan is a fine artist in oils, acrylics, pen and pencil. Her work is the result of experience, observation and knowledge as well formal studies. Susan has shown her work in exhibition and competition and painted theatre sets for "little" theatre, including sets for childrens' theatre. She believes that painting and drawing are like poetry and can express the mundane or the amazing in terms that accentuate reality, that appeal to the half-world of the psyche, sometimes in a cathartic recognition of trauma or joyful experience. Susan paints in styles ranging from the realistic to the expressionistic and surrealistic.
