Painting on Stone

Susan von Borstel is an internationally collected artist of horses, wildlife and people. She is currently painting with oils on natural stone.

Susan hunts for inspiring patterns in stones and when she finds such a stone she creates friendly paintings that tease the viewer into supplying the details.

Susan's work is in private collections in the US, Canada, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia and others. Her work has been featured in many magazines and their covers. She offers original paintings and commissions.
