Susan Smith

I am a longtime resident of Chestnut Hill. After I retired from a career as a lawyer/business executive, I pursued several successful creative ventures, including knitting and jewelry design. However, decreased vision from macular degeneration made those activities difficult. I was fortunate to find that I could see through a lens.

Most of my work is centered on travel and horticulture. Memory is fleeting, so I choose to photograph subjects in their natural environments to freeze moments in time. Focusing on light and using close observation to capture details that often goes unnoticed defines my work. I most frequently print on metal to intensify the color and clarity of the images.

I grow most of my own flowers and vegetables and keep bees that serve as good images even in this pandemic, when travel is limited.

Editor’s Note: Susan’s greeting cards are now available at all Weavers Way locations.
