Susie is an abstract mixed media artist who primarily works with alcohol inks on *Yupo. The fourth of six girls, Susie grew up in a creative household with a crafty mom and a dad who does woodworking in his retirement. Art has always been a part of Susie’s life—as a child, she was lucky to take art lessons from her watercolorist grandma, Chris Ardelean, and also master watercolorist J. Anna Roberts. Susie graduated from Marian University in 2009 with a degree in Graphic Design. Susie finds inspiration from all aspects of life: nature, poetry, pop-culture, spirituality, ancient symbols, and her relationships. She is in love with the process of creating fluid art and hopes her joy comes through in the finished product.
