Susan is a self taught artist who first discovered her passion for drawing and painting when she retired and moved to Oro-Medonte from Toronto. After some introductory classes from a local Barrie artist she began growing her skills in graphite, watercolour, pastel, coloured pencil and acrylic. Susan enjoys painting a variety of subjects in a realistic style and especially enjoys the challenge of portraiture. She loves watching as the paper starts to breathe life as she attempts to capture the subject’s personality and likeness. Susan was a member of the Executive board of OFAA for 3 years and is still a member of Orillia Fine Arts Association.
