Susan Strong (McDonald) has found inspiration and pleasure painting flowers and plants in a traditional watercolor style. She first became interested in drawing botanical subjects at the University of Michigan Biological Station, where she studied for two summers during college. She still owns an early pen and ink drawing of milkweed that she completed at Sweet Briar College. This started her on her artistic career. She taught art and design at North Hennepin Community College in Minneapolis and was a founding member of W.A.R.M. (the Women’s Art. Registry of Minnesota). After retiring from teaching, she studied at the Academy of Botanical Art in Sarasota, Florida. Her paintings for this exhibit reflect her interest in the natural world, botany, color and form.
