Susan Benson was born in Kent, England. She trained as a painter in the UK before emigrating to Canada, where she was the head of production at Stratford (Ontario) for more than 20 years. Her superlative designs for sets and costumes have won awards and many are still being produced.
Susan moved to Salt Spring Island in 2010 to devote herself full time to her true passion – painting. With her masterful techniques and vivid imagination she conjures entire storyboards in every painting and whole lives in her portraiture. http://susanbensonart.com/paintings/
