Susan is a self taught artist who only picked up her pencils in June of 2015 when she closed up her grade book for the last time following 26 years as a social studies teacher.
She is also an internationally recognized medium for over 15 years, who specializes in doing Spirit Portraits for clients in sessions by linking in with the loved one in spirit, then drawing in a light trance state- either the Spirit who she has connected with or someone they have brought through for the sitter. These 4 minute sketches are generally recognized by clients who later supply photos to show the similarity to their loved one. The portrait becomes part of the evidence of survival of the human spirit.
Susan began to study portraiture to improve her Spirit Art, but found something interesting- in doing portraits from photos, she is able to capture the personality or essence of the subject in a way that defies explanations beyond 'other worldly help.'
