Susan Haigh was born on Salt Spring Island and has always lived close to nature. Working in oils or acrylic on canvas or board, she creates compositions from her own reference photographs. With an eye for the special details that characterize each plant, her paintings are full of light and vibrant colour.
As a gardener, Susan has been continually surprised by the range of colours and variety of forms taken on by different plants. Textures and patterns abound, from the centre of a tiny flower to the broad view of a whole landscape. Mimicking the bold designs of nature, Susan’s canvases echo the excitement and relentless energy of all life. Susan Haigh’s paintings can be found in private collections in Canada, USA, Germany and New Zealand. http://www.susanhaigh.ca/
