• Let’s connect. I have two Instagram accounts (as if one wasn’t enough). 1. @susantuttle is where you can view my purely iPhone sensual art which tends to be monochrome and mysterious in nature with splashes of color here and there for accent. You’ll find portraiture explorations and scenic natural landscape shots. 2. For my everyday experiments in artful living, visit my other IG account @susantuttleartist (formerly @drawn.to.the.river).
• I’ve enjoyed this book immensely. So much so, that I bought an autographed copy of the first edition. A magician with words, she is. And the way she views the world and her experience in it is unique, artful, human and inspiring.
