Welcome to Created by Susan

Hi, I'm Susan, and I'm thrilled to have you join me on this creative journey. As a passionate artist, author, and musician, I love crafting books spanning an array of genres, from ukulele music to children's picture books. I love including my art in each one as I watch my style and interests evolve.

Navigating chronic pain and illness has been a significant chapter in my life, but rather than allowing it to hinder me, I've chosen to embrace resilience and forge ahead. Susan’s Expressions serves as a dedicated space where I share my writings on the intersections of art, music, creativity, and wellness.

Join me on this journey as we explore the transformative power of creativity in overcoming life's challenges. Whether you're an art enthusiast, a music lover, or someone seeking inspiration for your wellness journey, I look forward to fostering a connection with you and building a community that celebrates the beauty of expression, strength, and perseverance.
