As a child, Susan Seddon Boulet (American, b. Brazil, 1941–1997) drew the animals on her family’s farm while listening to folktales told by her father. From these simple roots, creating art became central to her life. She developed a unique style, an inspired vision suffused with detail, texture, and color. Boulet’s artwork reflects her innermost journey as well, with emphasis on her study of world spiritual traditions. Even as she explored the darker aspects of the psyche in her work and began her long struggle with cancer, she retained the energy, honesty, and warmth that endeared her to so many. In the decades since Boulet’s death, her artwork has continued to move and inspire people the world over.
