Thank You for your interest in Susan’s portraiture and artwork. It is an honor to share these visions with you.

My children have been photographed all their lives. Like everyone else, sometimes trying to gather is challenging. I believe this is important. I know it is. Photo shoots are fun, they help us know where we come from and who we are.

For almost forty years, Susan has been creating artwork in the studio, at homes, the beach, down streams, & beautiful places everywhere.

The portrait artwork began during while Susan was college freshman ( she was always making something as a child)! Her photography business began home based studio while raising young children. Moved into a charming turn of the century house and in 2010,  Susan opened her ‘dream studio.’ Waking distance to the beach in Bay Head, NJ.  

October 2012, Superstorm Sandy washed 5 feet of the Atlantic ocean through also flooding her home.

 The gifts of the storm was the goodness of people who helped (some complete strangers), another was the ability to grow as an artist; the underwater & water series emerged.
