Art by Susan Dancer

Susan is a multi-media visual artist and writer. She is fascinated by story, myth and archetype, and how these can be used as tools for individual evolution. Susan paints, writes and illustrates childrens books, and has made a number of short documentaries dealing with culture, immigration and inclusion.
A few years ago Susan began a quest into the Divine Feminine; how a cultures religious ideology affects the treatment of women and Mother Earth within the culture. Seeing how our current western mythology has sidelined the feminine, she looked at different cultures and societies to find where the goddesses have gone. She found the Creator Goddesses of old had largely been kicked out, into the dark, deep regions of our psyche. The powerful male god sent his mother to the basement and now the world is paying for it.
Susans ongoing painting project, Goddesses, is a reflection of this quest. The paintings are watercolour pencil and watercolour paint on small squares of birch plywood and will be part of a show where an entire wall is covered with images of Goddesses.
Susan was born in northern Canada and lives in a small town in the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains. She has a BFA in Art and Design from the University of Alberta.
