Susan's interests involve art as a means of communication:  She thinks the creation of something visual is an effort to make sense of the world and our experiences within it.  Drawing is a primary form of expression, and although  her drawings of the figure often show an intuitive and spontaneous response, they are underpinned by many years of drawing from observation.
