At the ripe age of three, Susan Michael Sørnesen decided to become a visual artist after winning an art contest. She went on to develop her personal style at the University of North Texas, California College of the Arts, Laguna Gloria Museum School, and The Southwest School of Art.
Sørensen’s figurative and portrait work is about playful interpretation of the human form. Her abstract work is about contrasting color, form, and nature. Her process involves making marks and removing marks until interesting shapes emerge from the layers of paint.
She won an Award for Achievement in Painting at the Voertman Show at University Gallery in Denton, Texas. She has exhibited in Texas, New York, and California.
