Susan von Borstel is an award winning internationally collected painter of animals and people.

She paints in oils on canvas and archivally prepared natural stone that inspire her with their patterns and textures. When she finds a special stone she creates a painting suggested by the stone that teases the viewer into supplying the details.

Taking suggestions from years of painting on stone, Susan also works in oil on canvas and follows where her imagination takes her. These paintings are layered, complex, often suggesting deeper meanings. Her lifelong involvement with nature guides her hand.

Susan's work has been featured in many magazines as well as on their covers. She paints full-time at her Davis studio and welcomes visitors
