Susan's background has often influenced her art:

Susan grew up outside of Annapolis, Maryland, attending a one-room schoolhouse. Her influences stem from the paradox of the serene countryside and comical but sometimes-tragic family characters. Her grandfather on her father's side, joined the Barnum T Bailey Circus during the Depression, after his partner jumped from the office window upon learning that they were to lose their business. Her mother was the youngest of seven, and from a prominent German-Jewish Family whose wealth was lost when Susan’s grandfather died from diabetes complications. Her mother taught her about love and the appreciation of the ARTS and the quality of life. Susan is passionate, inquisitive and has a childlike fascination for the joys of life.

She studied dance at Peabody Conservatory, and under Estelle Dennis, writing under award-winning author Andrei Codrescu. She was originally self-taught in art and aslo has studied under many sucessful art professors and exhibiting artists. Susan has a BA in English. Her past also includes founding a woman-owned art gallery.

She was approved for an Artist membership at MOMA. (Modern Museum of Art.) She has taught at the JCC, and at The Arts Center in Carborro. Susan is a member of the Durham Art Guild and the North Carolina Poetry Society. Susan lives by what she coined over 20 years go,
“ Art not only reports our different visions of our world, but also creates new worlds and new visions.” This is her mission.
