About the Artist: Susan Roberts

Susan grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and was always in the process of painting or creating something. While studying art in college, her love of travel took her to the Bahamas, where she met her future husband. The Bahamas soon became her new home. Susan’s art studies continued by drawing and painting the tropical world around her and by attending weekly painting workshops under the guidance and in the studios of well-known local artists. Going to local painting classes was another way to merge her interests.

A move to Stuart/Palm City area of Florida in 2000 brought her children stateside and found Susan bringing herself into the energy and influence of the thriving art community that exists in Stuart. It also introduced her to various techniques and use of mediums, of which oils and watercolors continue to be her favorites for their richness and depth of color.

Susan’s work is in private collections both stateside and abroad. Many of her original pieces are spoken for before they are even completed. Continuing to live between two “worlds” and two warm weather cultures, Susan tries to impart the best from both in the creative process. Her fascination with the underwater world is apparent, particularly being known as the Turtle Lady. Her love of the wildlife that inhabits these surroundings resonates within her compositions.

Her daughter’s interest and focus in the Agriculture Industry, particularly beef cattle, has caught Susan’s passion, with the rugged beauty and history of this industry and cowboy culture. Since it also goes hand in hand with horses, a lifelong love of hers, the circle is complete.
