Susan completed a three-year program in contemporary art at France’s École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 1987 and studied realism at Tehran’s Petgar Painting Academy in 1987. She is an oil painter who has always had great respect for the old masters of tradition, and that admiration of traditional paintings extends to the realism in her work today. Often inspired by the elegance of ballet, she tries to translate the dancers’ dignity and elegance onto her canvas in order to bring to light their feelings, dreams, and souls.
