Susanne Kathleen Berg

I was born in Vancouver on June 10th 1951. My mother painted in oils, and she was very good at capturing people and animals on canvas. I have always been a creative crafty person. I enjoy knitting, crochet, quilting, pottery, reading and painting. I did very little painting once I left Art classes in school. When we moved to Alberta in 1977, I was busy with my boys, but once they went off to school I found a bit of time to dabble. Then we moved back to BC and life took over again.

It was not until I moved to the Shuswap full time in 2008 that I started looking at the trees and sky and thinking about how I would paint them. I have painted in water colors, oils, inks and my favorite (as I like to move fast) acrylic. When I stand in front of a canvas I lose track of time. I paint for my own enjoyment, and sometimes someone else enjoys them too.
