Susanne is an abstract painter whose work reflects her strong love of colour.

Over the years her work has changed from semi realistic to intuitive non-objective pieces incorporating texture, mark making and pattern. She finds this compelling and challenging.

Paintings from her older Musical Series are regularly used to promote prestigious musical events and have been used in many different places all over the world including the Virenze Concerts held in the classical 14th century Castle Rijckholt in the Netherlands and Sinfónico Pereira in Colombia.

Her paintings and handprints are in collections in Canada, NZ, Australia, China, Europe, the UK and USA.

A Kiwi by birth she has lived in Ottawa and Toronto, the historic city of York in the UK and the US three times in three different places. Susanne now is delighted to live in Havelock North after returning to NZ in 2020.
