Summer Splash
A native to Wisconsin, Susan has lived there all her life, and is currently based out of Neenah, Wisconsin. She has had a fascination with art since she was able to draw with a crayon at about 3 or 4 years of age. She is primarily self taught, but admits to having studied under other successful artists on occasion, and for a brief time studied at the University of Wisconsin. Her greatest teacher she feels, is the observation of nature and her surroundings. Susan has also learned a great deal from reading, and studying work of other artists. Susan likes to paint what inspires her at the time, be it people, flowers, animals, or perhaps a theme or ideal represented by imagery. The greatest gift to her from her art is when others enjoy her art.
