Eclectic yet focused, Susan McCarrell’s mixed media works are reflections on memory, rituals of life, including celebrations, successes and missteps. She owns a unique style which is energetic, playful, bound by discipline and tradition. Her art confronts the ups and downs of modern life with connections to similarities of past lives with strong feminine energy.
Using a combination of mixed media, photography and personal, historical images, she likens her art to a ‘construction’ to produce her natural and organic pieces. Susan hopes that her work piques in the viewer an interest in the passage of time and brings them to their own piece of history. A thread runs through Susan’s work that makes it unmistakably hers.
Susan relocated from Vancouver, British Columbia to the South Okanagan, British Columbia in 1996 where she
owned and operated a winery for thirteen years.
