The work of Susan Farber is recognizable by its vibrant use of colour, texture and unique layering. Her themes change every year as new inspiration develops from the world around her. When she is not in the studio she is likely to be found immersed in the dirt, nurturing plants and creating art within her many gardens.
Originally from Montreal, Susan has found her home north of Kingston in a rural community where she has a home studio filled with inspiring artifacts ranging from african masks to little gremlin dolls to antique sewing machines. In this remote region she is free to explore the landscape nurturing a wide array of plants and flowers creating living work of art. Surrounded by luscious vegetation, her inspiration in fibre arts comes from a vast supply of experiences, as well as exotic worlds she has never seen but only read about in books and magazines.
Although her interests are broad, she finds intricate yet playful details to be most rewarding, whether it be elvish art dolls, exotic totems or multi layered wall art.
