the Story

It’s not really my story, it’s your story. It’s the families who share their lives & moments so we can make personal artwork.

We capture feelings, joys, family life, peoples loves, their reason for being and then together we make art.

For over thirty years, Susan has been creating gorgeous family and children portraits in the studio and on location at homes, the beach, down streams, & beautiful places everywhere. The portrait artwork began during while Susan was just a freshman in college (although as child she was always making something)! Her portrait business began home based studio while raising young children. Eventually moved into a second story office with a studio on in a charming turn of the century house on Main Street in Marlboro Village.

In 2010,  Susan opened her ‘dream studio’ within waking distance to the beach on Mount Street in Bay Head, New Jersey.  October 2012, Superstorm Sandy washed 5 feet of the Atlantic ocean through the studio.  The same time flooding her home.  One of the gifts of the storm was the goodness of so many people who helped (some complete strangers), another was the ability to grow as an artist; the underwater series emerged from this growth.

With her children ‘launched’, Susan is now “Grammy ” to three little darlings! There is another perspective as a grandparent in her works.

Yet according to Susan, “the real art comes from the families who have opened their hearts and lives. This is the way something magical occurs.”
