After graduating with a degree in Drawing and Painting from Edinburgh College of Art, Susan had various jobs—unfortunately most of them had nothing to do with illustration. Her most creative jobs were working as a scenic artist’s assistant at an old theatre and running art workshops for community groups.
Then, in 1994, Susan emigrated  from Scotland to Montreal. Before leaving, she visited a gypsy fortune teller who said that she would move across the water, have an only son and illustrate children’s books. This wonderful prediction encouraged her to pursue illustration as a career instead of just dreaming about it.
Susan now works full-time as an illustrator and has twenty six books published to date. When she is not drawing or painting, she loves to sew and make soft toys that resemble her artwork.
