Water, weather, landscape and life is what Susan's work is about. Australian born of Finnish parents, Susan grew up in the Australian bush and a small coastal town on the mid-north coast of NSW. These influences are evident in Susan's work, as is her life as parent of a son with cerebral palsy.
Consequently, she uses a wide variety of media and techniques. Susan's current work draws on her Finnish heritage and pays homage to her Grandmother's woven wall hangings. Susan has a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art and Visual Culture) and works from her studio at Marcus Beach.
