Susanne is drawing on reflections and sources of inspiration that have supported her through the turbulent time of the COVID pandemic. Her current works stand for groundedness, mindfulness , and self-care during upheaval. Susanne depicts natural beauty in her art because nature retains its beauty throughout tough times and Susanne regards it as the only dependable, constant source of inspiration.
Susanne began painting in her 40s, quickly discovering her passion for the pastel medium in 2017. Her focus has been landscapes and close-up portraits of birds. Two solo exhibitions attest to Susanne’s prolificness with a preference for painting large.
As a member of the Toowoomba Art Society and the Pastel Society of Australia, Susanne regularly exhibits pieces in group exhibitions, as well as pursuing exhibition and competition opportunities locally and overseas.
Susanne has been a regular participant in McGregor Art Retreats and has been influenced by all tutors there. Influential pastel artists include Max Wilks, Grace Paleg and Marla Baggetta.
