Suzn Smith passed away on May 3rd, 2017 at 58 years old due to complications from stage IV pancreatic cancer. In her final moments, she was at peace and surrounded by loved ones. Through it all, Suzn maintained unparalleled courage, positivity, and mental strength. In the last months of her life, she would not allow cancer to steal the things she loved and she continued to produce her art and share it with the world.
Suzn (Susan) Smith is survived by her two daughters, Sarah and Hilary… and then there is me, David Smith, Susan’s ex-husband and friend. As a labor of love, I have made it my personal mission to see her art live on and continue this website, because that’s what she would have wanted. She was the kindest person I've ever known and I loved her deeply. Susan was a great mother, wife, and friend. She had the soul of a gypsy and spent her last few years realizing her life-long dream of traveling the country and painting from wherever the wind blew her.
I hope you enjoy her art as much as she loved painting it.
Thank you for your support!
