Whether depicting the delicacy of a rose or the majesty of an elephant, Susan Kathleen brought the essence of her subjects to life through her paintings. Her all-too-brief life is a crowning testimonial to selfless friendships, unrelenting determination and boundless dedication. Unafraid of taking risks or experimenting, Susan Kathleen painted with a free spirit, eager to find her own unique voice as an artist. What she brought forth was a vital creativity that continued to reinvent itself throughout her life.
Susan Kathleen was much loved and admired. For some she became a role model and an inspiration, for not only did she dare to dream, she also had the discipline that brought those dreams to reality.
She was a person of uncommon caring, making those in her life feel special and loved.
The Foundation seeks to bring her spirit into each of its programs and projects.
