Susan Schneider Williams, b. 1964, resides in Marin County, California.

“I am a native Californian and I continually find myself captivated by the light and color of the landscapes that surround us in the Bay Area and beyond. The ever-changing natural beauty that unfolds throughout the cycle of each day and each year inspires me. When I see a special moment of light, I use my camera to capture it and then work from the photograph back in my studio. My desire to communicate with others the beauty, power and inspiration found in that moment is what drives me to paint. My joy is in translating onto canvas the visual and emotional content of that point in time. ”
