Susan is both a photographer and a watercolour artist. Initially taking photos as reference for her art work, her artistic eye comes into play when composing images in the camera. As requests for her images have increased, the time she spends with the camera is taking precedence.
Susan is passionate about her photography.
Her love of landscapes, flowers, birds influences her choice of subjects. Portraiture has become a favourite too. Travel has given Susan lots of inspiration for her landscapes. Purely by popular demand Susan is focusing on images of France, Italy and Western Australia.
Susan is an active member of the WA Camera Club Inc and enjoys participating in the monthly competition night.
Susan's photography hangs in private collections around the world.
