Born in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Artist Susan Christensen has a deep passion for her Island home and for the arts. Her artwork is evidence of this combination. She has travelled extensively enabling her to appreciate the beauty and serenity of Prince Edward Island. This communion with nature is the essence of her inspiration: an exploration of her personal response to her surroundings. Susan has produced works known internationally and nationally as well as locally. Her photo etchings have shown in Japan on numerous occasions. Her image ‘Beach Walk, PEI’ was chosen to represent Prince Edward Island at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
