Susan Greenbank is an abstract artist and designer based in Calgary, Alberta. She was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick and has vast knowledge and experience in many different forms of art. Mentored by renowned New Brunswick artist Tom Smith (1933-2015), in pottery and drawing, Susan was encouraged to pursue a degree in fine arts and interior design at Georgian College and finished at Ryerson University, now known as the Toronto Metropolitan University. Now retired from a long career in interior design and architecture, she dedicates her time to creating abstract impressions of seascapes. Throughout her fine art career, she has studied and taught pottery, printmaking, painting and drawing.
Susan describes herself as a printmaker at the core of her art practice. She creates abstract and bold seascapes inspired by the Passamaquoddy Bay. She paints exclusively on paper and mounts the paintings onto birch wood panels. She uses only acrylic and gift cards, credit cards or membership cards as her painting tool to create bold activated scenes.
Susan resides in the Sunbury Shores Library (upstairs, centre room) until May 28th. Pop in to say hello and see the incredible volume of work she is creating!
