Workshop information will be announced
Susan Burnham Neilson is a classically trained contemporary oil painter with a background in art education. Since moving to her home next to a nature conservancy in British Columbia, her art has celebrated the flora and fauna in the forest by her doorstep. She is interested in life cycles, wildlife, ecology, natural geometry, and our connections with nature.
In Susan’s drawings and paintings, she explores ways to integrate tradition and innovation; starting with sketchbooks, and direct hands-on processes.
