Susan Sargent is a visual artist and wildlife activist who is bringing her passion regarding the future of the African elephant across the continents and seas to raise awareness on this global predicament.
“I find the plight of global wildlife in our modern era my impetus for becoming an artist-activist. The African Elephant, particularly, has inspired me to become a part of bringing awareness to the dire situation this species is in. Using the visual language of my artwork I hope to give voice to those with whom we share the earth but cannot speak for themselves.
“My paintings are my way of sharing my life’s observations. Wildlife has become a particularly ardent passion. I feel compelled to express my experiences with them and also the many rich day to day inspirations and pleasures as well. Dreams, spirit and the mystical, esoteric dimensions of life are also areas I love to explore.”
A native of New Hampshire, Susan Sargent moved to The Bahamas in 1990. She is a natural artist, mostly self taught, who has learned from tutors and workshops in the United States. Apart from her many solo exhibitions, her work has ben selected for four juried shows and art fairs.
Her paintings now reside in the collections of clients in the United States, Europe, and The Bahamas.
