Profile: Susan Lyon
Susan Lyon lives and maintains her studio in rural North Carolina with her husband, artist Scott Burdick (Members - see Voices of Experience - Scott Burdick). But Lyon's work reflects a much greater world and is inspired by the extensive travel she and Burdick have done. Her paintings are greatly influenced by the people she meets as she travels, their faces, their traditions and their cultures. Her painting trips and travels have included most of Europe, Turkey, Greece, Mexico, Canada, Nepal, Thailand, China and Africa. She says, The excitement of traveling, seeing so many new sights, and incredible works in museums; combined with the challenge of painting on the spot make me a travel addict! Even before I go on a trip I'm planning the one after.
