Susan May

I'm a scientist by training and an artist at heart. I have a B.S. and M.S. in Geology, and spent 25 years teaching geology, chemistry, physics and astronomy to adults and children. I always loved being creative and incorporated art with science whenever I could. I didn't really start learning to paint until about 2006 when I took my first official art class.  

I love nature and enjoy painting  sea turtles, wolves, foxes, longhorns and many others.  Once I started painting dragonflies, I found my original artistic voice. Jewelry was a unusual development that has really become a passion as well. 
 I am retired from teaching and am looking forward to a future full of dragonfly jewelry and art!
