love for art
and sharing that love started as a very young child when she would
round up the neighborhood kids for arts and crafts.
Today, the art classes in watercolor painting, drawing, cartooning
and paper mache she teaches through the extension and community
college courses and her workshops at Snow
Goose Studio are just as well received and attended.
Her love of Mother Nature takes her on many road trips on which
to broaden her artistic horizons. One of her favorite places is
Yosemite which has been the subject of several of her watercolor
paintings. She also enjoys the coast, but will usually see a watercolor
painting in almost anything Mother Nature has to offer including
in her own backyard.
A native Californian, Susan has been a resident of Nevada City,
California for nearly 30 years. While in college, she majored
in art, of course.
with wire, paper, paint and imagination, Susan creates small and
large paper mache creations. Always different, sometimes odd but
Susan's love of Mother Nature takes her on many road trips in search
of subjects to paint.
