About This Piece
Inspiration for this painting was discovered on the coast of Singer Island, Florida.  


I am always amazed when observing the continuous unending motion of the sea – a steady flow powered by nature. In these observations, I discover the ocean’s metaphoric ties to human life, the busy and at times anxious human momentum. It's a reminder to slow down and meditate on nature, a time to connect spiritually and to offer ourselves some personal introspection.


Born in Mainz, Germany, Susan Outlaw is a Canadian realist painter with a background in commercial design. 


Outlaw worked for years as an art director for a noted advertising firm in Burlington. She changed direction in 2021 to devote time to a growing family and return to her original passion, painting. 


Susan’s work can be found in various private and corporate collections throughout Canada and the United States. International sales include the prestigious 47 Park Place Hotel in London, England. Outlaw has received multiple awards for her work, including the Ontario Arts Council. 


Many of Outlaw’s paintings are a response to a scene that has moved her emotionally or spiritually. “My work maintains a contemplative focus on nature and its restorative, rejuvenating power. Urban dynamics, oppressive commutes, and the hectic pace of life threaten our spiritual and emotional health. I want to offer the viewer an escape, a moment of reflection, and a return to peace and balance”. 


Susan donates her paintings to such causes as UNICEF Canada, the Dundas Valley School of Art Auction and Ryan’s Rays to name a few.
