Susan's watercolors are a shop favorite

My passion for art began at the early age of five when I took classes at the Des Moines Iowa art center.  Although, when it came to my career, I followed in my Dad’s footsteps, choosing the more practical field of architecture.  After 15 years of practice, I moved on to other art related vocations, including my own wedding photography business, followed by six years as a landscape designer.  Then in 2016, at age 60, I took the leap of faith and decided to pursue my art full time….  with the added income of driving a school bus! 

The subjects of my watercolor paintings include street scenes, native birds, wildlife and portraits.  My work has an energetic and expressive style that perfectly reflects my background in architecture, my love of nature, and my great lust for life.
