Featured Artist for October 2019 – Susan Mills


Susan is a wire sculptor based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Susan’s designs are mainly made from wire. She loves
how wire manipulates into figures and forms and how light creates shadows on the walls and backgrounds that
surround her sculptures. Some of Susan’s wire pieces have alcohol ink backdrops which provide intense
colours and interest for her wire artworks.

Susan’s work is influenced by nature and by coastal living. Having been born and raised in the Maritimes she
has always been influenced by what the east coast of Canada has to offer; especially the Atlantic Ocean. The
ocean brings her a sense of calmness and the crashing of the waves places her into a tranquil state. Nova
Scotia is her “happy place”.
