Welcome! My website is divided into two sections. One is dedicated to help artists on their journey of discovery, and the other section is dedicated to those who love fine art viewing and collecting.

There are many cross-overs and numerous places of great interest within each of these two main sections. It is easy to flick between them using the menu on the left of each page - so you can enjoy a full and varied journey through my website.

Susan Harrison-Tustain has been painting "forever". At the age of three she remembers drawing - crayon in hand - on her newly painted bedroom wall. Her exhibitions now see patrons from throughout New Zealand and many countries attend these much awaited events. Susan is humbled to see up to 3000 visitors attend her two day exhibitions.

Susan's original oil paintings and watercolor paintings of figurative, still life, floral (particularly rose paintings), portrait studies, as well as time-worn interior scenes, aged doors and window studies, are painted with a great sensitivity to her subject that she is able to capture emotion within her brush-strokes. Her work engages the viewer creating a connection that often remains in the memories of the viewers of her work long after they have left its presence.

A note from Susan:

Welcome to my website. It has specifically been designed for lovers of fine art and also for artists who wish to extend their knowledge and passion for painting in a naturalistic realism style.

My new site is divided into two sections:

Fine Art Section

For Artists Section

There are many crossovers and numerous sections within each of these sites. It is easy to flick between them so you can enjoy a full and varied journey through my website.

Fine Art Section

It is the beauty of everyday things that I find so compelling. The happened-upon moments, the often unnoticed and inconspicuous 'treasures' that we so often miss in our busy lives, that I love to draw attention to.
I delight in portraying the layers of history that nature has cloaked around each painting subject. The ephemeral nature of such things excites the artist within and compels me to capture these moments for all time.
My exhibitions often see queues forming hours before the doors open. You can see these works in my website gallery which document a life-time of creative achievement.

For Artists Section

"This portion of my site is dedicated to all artists - artists of all abilities and mediums.

Are you on a plateau and don't know who to bring a professional edge to your work? You have come to the right place. This is my speciality!

My website is designed to help you. I remember well the frustration of my first forays into painting - not knowing where to go for help. Then finding myself on a plateau - my work was good but I wanted it to be so much better. I wanted my life's work to revolve around painting. But who could help me to see, to learn to grow and to succeed.

This powerful yearning motivated me to achieve and now to share all I know about painting with you to help you reach your full potential.

If this is you - then the For Artist's Section is designed to help you move off that plateau and live the artists life you have been yearning for."
