Vancouver Island artist with abstract and representative works of Canadian landscapes

Apples for Nourish Cowichan

2019: Apples for the Nourish Cowichan kitchen.

“I paint because I have always wanted to push what I see in my mind’s eye through my hand onto a waiting surface. For me, painting is an act of joining the interior world to the one I see outside of myself. Whether my works are representative pieces or abstractions, they convey an emotional parallel to the natural world around me.”

Susan Stitt is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and lives on Vancouver Island in Cowichan Bay, British Columbia, Canada. She has studied oil painting in the tradition of the old masters and, more recently, in abstract expression. She paints in oils, acrylics and oil and cold wax.
