Susan von Borstel is an award winning internationally known painter of horses, wildlife and people.

She paints in oils on canvas and archivally prepared natural stones 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 her many years of painting on stone, Susan also works with oil on canvas and goes where ever her imagination takes her, These paintings are layered, complex, full of memories. Her lifetime involvement with animals guides her hand.

Collected around the world, Susan's work has been featured in many magazines as well as on their covers.
