Born in Bradford, Pennsylvania and educated in voice, piano and violin in Princeton, NJ and Philadelphia, Susan developed an appreciation for watercolor when first inspired by visits to the Andrew Wyeth collection of the Brandywine Museum along with other Philadelphia area museums and galleries. There, in 1983 she began private study in watercolor.

Moving to Houston in the mid 1980s, she began formal studies of drawing, oil painting and composition at the Glassell School of Art. She eventually became employed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, first in the Publications Department and, later, the office of director Peter Marzio.

Through the Watercolor Art Society-Houston (WAS-H), Susan has enjoyed many workshops, studying with some of the country’s finest watercolor instructors. Establishing her own studio in 1996, she continues to investigate watercolor’s wonderful transparency, brilliant color and versatility. She is now a WAS-H instructor of mixed watermedia techniques.

Susan has served as president of WAS-H, and most recently as volunteer development director. As a result of her hard working team, WAS-H is enjoying the first building in the US known to have been constructed for the specific purposes of teaching and exhibiting watercolor.

A mother of two grown sons, Susan also offers private instruction in piano, violin and cello. She and her husband Bruce Winquist divide their time between Houston and Chautauqua Lake in western New York.
