Susan was born and raised in Canada, but moved to the United States in the early 70s. Her love of photography started in the year 2000 after happening into a gallery on the coast of Oregon, where she saw photographs that completely changed her artistic direction. After a few years of learning traditional darkroom work, she took a lith workshop from Tim Rudman, and has stayed with lith ever since. Her diverse photographic style is always printed using lith materials, which gives her the nostalgic and ethereal feel she is strives for. Currently, Susan lives in Portland, Oregon.
