Artist Profile Susan Capan…
Susan Capan, owner and resident artist of Capanart Gallery, has been painting and drawing all her life. She is mostly self taught, an award winner, private art teacher and guest show judge.
Her subject range is varied, although portraiture predominates and customers are amazed at the range of subjects she does paint.
Her studio is at the rear of her gallery on beautiful Tamborine Mountain in Queensland’s, Gold Coast Hinterland, Australia, where she finds plenty of inspiration to paint.
She usually works by commission using the clients photo, which can be emailed or a hard copy sent by post. Susan prides herself in creating a really good result from a clients photograph and using a little artistic licence to enhance and improve the subject.
Once a commission is requested Susan stays in contact with the client and shows a photo of each stage of the painting so the client can enjoy the process and request variations and changes if need be, which makes it a very rewarding experience for both artist and client.
Susan is also creating more abstract works in unique styles full of energy and colour.
