Susan Labouri was born to her passion for animals and painting. Raised by her artist Mother at Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California, she found it natural to pick up a pencil and draw the subject she loved and was surrounded by: wildlife.
She has studied with some of the best known wildlife artists in the World, such as Carl Brenders, Terry Isaac, Robert Bateman and John Seerey-Lester. They have given her a whole new outlook on art and her own work, which can be found in New Caledonia, Australia, Europe and the U.S.. She has worked in color pencils, pastels and gouache. But now she is exclusively in Acrylic. She now travels around the world in search of her subjects. Researching and studying the mammals and birds she so loves. Trying to capture a little moment in their lives. Her subjects come from North America, Europe, Australia, Africa and the South Pacific.
