After many years of painting from photographs, Susan recently turned to painting plein air landscapes. Her art training began with her father, Howard Terpning and fortunately she was able to spend nine years in Tucson working closely under his tutelage. Susan has been a resident of the Southwest for 28 years and currently lives in Santa Fe, where the New Mexico countryside suits her sense of artistic beauty.
