Susan is a native of Southern California, but chose to live in New England 25 years ago after living at sea on cruise liners for years. She is a long-time lover of travel & landscape photography, but now focuses most of her attention on photographing birds. Her favorites are raptors (hawks, eagles, owls, and harriers) but also enjoys searching for smaller, more colorful birds including songbirds, woodpeckers, and shorebirds.
In 2017, she was accepted as a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association. In 2018, she was honored with an exhibit hosted by them in Portsmouth, NH. Susan sells her work as prints, calendars and photo cards in two shops in Newburyport.
