Susan Bennett Lives and works in a studio nestled under tall Cedar and Fir trees not far from Columbia River Gorge in Oregon.
She is inspired by the tales of The Ancients and their contemporary expression…how they filter through to us whether it be in dreams or in the play of synchronicity in our lives. She is ever on the lookout for these signs and manifestations of the fierceful beauty life offers us.
Susan St Clair Bennett studied old master techniques at the Boston Museum School working with egg tempera and oil glazes. She later studied Tibetan art restoration in Paris for several years and continues to repair tangka’s (sacred scroll paintings) that date back to the 14th century. She has studied Kashmir Shaivism and Vajrayana Buddhist meditation practices for many years and has traveled to Tibet, India, Nepal and Japan exploring the art and spiritual traditions of each culture. She currently resides on the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon where she is learning the uses of the local herbs, enjoying the company of her three American Indian dogs as well as Sasquatch.
