Pachinko is a Japanese pinball game my husband and I discovered on our trips to Japan. I felt that the "retro" style reflected the wonderful design of the game and conveyed its playful energy.

Getting to Know Susan

A master of oils, cold wax, and mixed media, Susan develops her abstract compositions by looking to nature for inspiration. She finds beauty in changing seasons and the hope that each new chapter has the power to evoke. Though the more things change, the more they also stay the same. “While I am open to new mediums, techniques, and approaches, a reverence for the past informs most of my work,” she says. Susan also notes that her career in graphic design has influenced her work in some ways, but she also loves the freedom and spontaneity that she is allowed in her studio.
