Susan paints every day. It’s what she does; it’s who she is. Her studio in Windwardside is her escape room…producing what moves her.
Susan has lived on Saba for 22 years but grew up in Hereford, the center of England. Encouraged by her seamstress mother, Susan can't remember not painting. She holds a Honors Degree in Fine Arts and a post graduate degree in art education. After school, the yearn to travel found her in southern Europe and Africa before she applied for a teaching position on Saba. She has been an art teacher in secondary schools on both Saba and St. Maarten and is part of the artist community that regularly paints together at different natural venues. You can enjoy her mural art on the walls of The Bottom Bean Café on Saba or stop in to her studio on the main road in Windwardside to observe her painting.
Susan will be painting traditional Saban Cottages during the first two weeks of May 2018.
Susan Tenholt will be teaching two Portrait Painting public workshops this May! Join her 2 day workshop on the 4th & 5th of May, or 11th & 12th of May. See our schedule for more details.
