Hi, my name is Susan and I am a fine art photographer who specializes in Macro Photography.  I have been taking photographs for over 10 years and I love it! In 2008, I received my Master in Arts from Adams State University.  After graduation, I opened my own wedding/event photography business but after four years discovered I was not in love with it. I decided to embrace my enjoyment of learning and go into teaching. During my undergraduate and graduate time, I taught various arts and photography classes.  I used this as a stepping stone for rejoining the teaching world. I proposed Macro photography courses to various institutes and eventually landed several contracted teaching jobs.  I taught these courses at various locations over the years and eventually landed a job as an Arts Coordinator. In 2016, I became a mother and wanted a lifestyle change.  I loved teaching and being an Arts Coordinator, however, I wanted something more accommodating. I decided to focus on my original inspiration for photography and re-explore the fine arts world.  
Currently I am re-visiting what I love about my past projects, and exploring different directions and possibilities that these projects can go.  I am working on creating a new collection of work that represents who I am now.  I am continuing to explore texture, shape, color and the translation of it to our world and combining it with story telling and new forms of representation. I am accompanying this with writing a blog about photography, being a mom. and rediscovering myself.  This exploration is a work in progress.  For more information on my process please view my general artist statement, for specific information on a series of works please visit the individual gallery, and for past exhibition and current please view my CV below.   
I am excited that you have taken the time to visit me.  For more information, purchasing inquires and just want to say hi, please email me!
