Susan Fisher

“If life is a journey, art is its companion.  It brightens my day.  I enjoy sharing it with other artists and enthusiasts.

Inspiration is everywhere.  I paint what I see, what I know and what I question.  Images appear on canvas and paper that spring as much from my imagination as from my surroundings.  Among my series are images of dogs at play, mothers and children, furniture, flowers, interiors and conversations.

A painting is more than paint applied to a surface.  It should tantalize the imagination and inspire questions.  What does it say to you?  What does it do to you?  Art is more.  Art is an eye-opening, mind-opening journey.”
