Hi, I’m Susan!

I discovered watercolors during a particularly challenging time in my life. While recovering from a bad flare of my chronic kidney disease, I was looking for something to distract me from stress and anxiety. I stumbled on some old watercolor supplies and quickly realized that it had been over 10 years since I made any kind of art.

And as it turns out, creating again was so healing. When I was painting I forgot all about the other things I was dealing with at the time.

I’m here to help you get inspired, encourage your artistic side…so come along and let’s paint together!
