Susan M. Havey-Fine Artist & Designer
After earning her BFA in Interior Design from Northern Illinois University, Susan had built a successful career in the Corporate Interior Design industry. Now, many years later-kids almost grown, Susan has discovered that she shares the same passion that her late mother once had for painting. When not painting in the studio, or attending classes with Frankie Johnson at Mainstreet Art Center, Susan enjoys painting outside from life. She has participated in many plein air competitions, exhibitions, and workshops throughout the country.
Susan works mostly in oils, and occasionally soft pastel or acrylic. She also creates artist sketchbooks from her travels in watercolor and ink. She enjoys a variety of subjects, especially landscapes-but it is always the latest project that holds her creative interest. She currently resides in the Barrington Area (Chicago Suburb in Northwest Illinois), with her husband, their three children and dogs. She is an active member of Barrington Cultural Arts Center, and recently joined Plein Air Painters of Chicago.
