More about Susan

“Everything happens for a reason, live it, love it, learn from it! Make your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile”


I paint because I love to. That makes for a rather short artist statement but it is my truth.

I paint what I see, what surrounds me. I use my vivid imagination to create animals and birds that smile at you and whimsical nautical scenes that always include a boat or two. On occasion a landscape or flowers will show up on my canvas. Whatever mood hits and wherever my imagination takes me.

I am an Active member of the prestigious Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA)

I am a self taught artist who has persevered to become better at what I enjoy doing most. My tools are basic, watercolors and ink or acrylics and canvas or paper.

If my art makes you smile then I have succeeded in my quest to make this world a brighter happier place.

    Hi Susan! I follow you on Instagram so I thought I’d drop by. I’m also a mum and grandmother who last took an art class in the 70s with a husband of 40 years, only I live in Greece! Painting makes me happy, and now, painting with the minions occasionally, even happier! 🌺Marina

    Thanks Susan, I too enjoy Sicamous in the spring, summer, fall and holidays in the winter, but Calgary is my work home. Enjoyed your site and art and hopefully will see you at the Friday Brush and Palette meetings next summer.
