Susan Easton Burns was born and went to school in upstate New York, and now lives and paints on a small farm in rural Georgia. She has taught art at several schools throughout her career, and now focuses on painting.  She begins paintings with lots of un-contained energy, and allows the paint to dictate the subject.  The subject must be seen before it is thought.  Her conversation with the viewer begins with a conversation with the paint. 

“Art will be infused with the energy of the moment.  As we evolve, attempting to make our lives relevant, art will help us to see and know ourselves.  My connection to nature and art, will hopefully enable the viewer to be more centered or balanced in their own life.  Art is another of several mirrors of ourselves in the universe.”
