Susan Victoria Phillips' journey to becoming an artist is the catalyst to a unique blend of experiences. Living in Montreal, Ottawa and Canada's Far North and her successful interior design business; writing her book The Seductive Power of Home Staging, and teaching Realtors staging secrets; designing more than 50 theatrical sets (including most proudly for the Dalai Lama), and her regular radio and television appearances to inspire audiences with ideas and advice on design.

Originating from London, England, Susan Victoria Phillips has made her home in many cities in Canada before she finally relocated and retired to the beautiful city of Victoria, British Columbia in 2013.

Susan discovered her love of painting upon arriving in Victoria. She finds that Vancouver Island really is a magical place that offers so much inspiration. Inspiration that comes from its oceans, lakes, streams and waterfalls, and continues to its ancient forests, creatures and an amazing  variety of birds.

Susan hopes you enjoy her portrayal of some of the magical scenes that has caused her to capture the delights on canvas binging you the sense of harmony and calm inherent to Vancouver Island.
