Featured Artist: Susan Chater

Susan Chater

Painting has been a passion for much of her life but she made a serious commitment to watercolour in 1982. 

While she has had formal training in the field of art, much of her technique can be attributed to years of experience and a few talented mentors.  Her paintings can best be described as detailed impressions, with strong use of colour and design.

Over the last eighteen years she has held nearly 30  exhibitions and her paintings have been displayed and sold in numerous galleries and exhibits across Ontario and the UK.  In 1997 she was proud to be elected to the Canadian Society of Painters In Watercolour (CSPWC), and she is  a silver signature member of the Toronto Watercolour Society (TWS).  She derives great pleasure from sharing the joy of this wonderful medium through teaching regular classes , jurying shows and teaching workshops.
