About Me

My name is Susan Van Sant, and I live in beautiful Grand Rapids, MI. I am a self-representing artist and have been creating and selling my artwork across the globe since 2007. Each painting has been carefully rendered on either stretched canvas or gessoed wood panel. I prefer acrylic paint, using a glazing technique with many layers that appear to “float” upon another which results in almost a dimensional quality with gorgeous depth of color. The edges are painted black, so the artwork can hang with or without a frame. Highest quality materials are used, ensuring my paintings will last many generations. My fine art prints are hand-pulled by me, the artist, ensuring the best possible likeliness of the originals.
