Susan was born in Illinois and grew up in Florida. She was an avid dancer from a very early age. Later she studied Ballet, Modern and Choreography at the University of Illinois and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1986. After graduation, she was in a touring modern dance company in the United States.
Susan migrated to Sydney, Australia in 1987. She continued to dance, teach and choreograph for several years. Her interest in drawing and painting developed after the birth of her second child.

Reading a biography of the famous American artist, Georgia O’Keefe, was the catalyst that began Susan’s interest in painting. Gradually, she began to sell her paintings and started “Soul Expressions ~ Commissioned Paintings”. This enabled her to expand her style and paint for client specifications. . Susan’s love of dance and movement is apparent in all of her paintings. She continues to dance Flamenco and Salsa as a hobby.

Fluidity and spontaneity are very important elements in both dance and painting. They keep art alive and breathing. Many of her recent paintings are signed with her middle name, Renée because she feels it represents her artistic expression.

Her full portfolio can be seen on her new website: susanreneeghosn.com

I am influenced by my clients and enjoy responding to their ideas for the art they want to see on their walls. I am also inspired by nature, movement and composition. My goal is to make a painting that expresses soul... whatever that means... to the person viewing it.
