I had the great pleasure and opportunity to work with the poetry of George Elliott Clarke earlier this year. Lasso the Wind: Aurélia's Verses and Other Poems will be out this fall.  Here are several illustrations... a bit of a preview!


  1. Susan ,your work and creative spirt is amazing, am so looking forward to buying Lasso the Wind. Wish you lived closer.

  2. Thanks for demonstrating your approach to creating the illustrations for Lasso the Wind at the “new book bash” held by the N.S. Children’s Literature Roundtable last Saturday. As an artist, you play a huge role in a child’s developing appreciation for excellence in the visual aspects of the books they read. In combination with the wonderful stories they accompany, your work will likely remain in their memories throughout their lives, as my childhood favourites have remained with me. All the best...
