A musician/song writer, artist, poet, designer, writer, and highly successful business woman, Susan is courageous, innovative, creative, energetic and committed. A walk through Susan’s world is an exciting journey revealing a passionate woman inspired by art and sustained by her empathy for others.

Inspired by artists such as Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a famous and highly regarded Austrian artists of the twentieth century and incorporating nature and vibrant colors, Susan’s art is abstract, organic, saturated with color. It draws the viewer into a world of color. Interpret it as you will, each of Susan's dreamlike paintings is subject to your insight.

Like the artists who influence her, such as Mexican Vladimar Cora whose work has been called neo-figurative, minimalist and coarse, Susan Fielder’s art is neo-primitive, outsider art (a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture). Other influencers are Picasso, Calder, and Miro.

"Susan's art drives me nuts! Choosing my favorite is a challenge. I can't have just one," says fan Vicki G.

Like other producers of outsider art, Susan's paintings have a naive quality. Some have deemed them visionary, schizophrenic, primitive, psychotic, obsessive, compulsive, untutored, vernacular, self-taught, rough, raw ...call them what you will. Outsider art is self-taught and non-academic. Outsider art is now on the inside with the Outsider Art Fair in Paris in Oct 2017. http://outsiderartfair.com/ A good history of Outsider Art can be found at http://outsiderartfair.com/outsider_art.

Taking this a step further, Susan’s medium is done entirely digitally. Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process including computer art and multimedia art, and digital art is itself placed under the larger umbrella term new media art.

More generally the term digital artist is used to describe an artist who makes use of digital technologies in the production of art. In an expanded sense, "digital art" is contemporary art that uses the methods of mass production or digital media.

Susan writes - “Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process.

"I have always wanted to be an artist," says Susan. Discovering her hidden talent has been both a surprise and happy shocker. She hopes you find as much pleasure in looking at her art as she has found in creating it.

With every painting/item purchased, a donation is made to funding Pancreatic Cancer researchers which took Susan's much loved husband Dan Mears.

I have a very big dream. One that I hope will make a difference for those people who are currently fighting, or families who have lost a loved one to the silent killer, pancreatic cancer.

The program I created is called Iplaid, which stands for "Intuitive Passion Launches an Inner Discovery."

This is what happens on the journey of loss and grieving, for ones you say goodbye to, way too soon. My husband, Dan Mears, was a wonderful man and deserved to enjoy his retirement, friends and family on his life-path. Instead, pancreatic cancer took us into a world that was unknown, scary and ultimately took him to a higher place.

My creations are what has happened since his death. Not planned, nor articulated, just what became. I prayed about finding answers and I believe that a Higher Power would lead me down this road.

My first image created on the iPad is called iPlaid on behalf of Steve Jobs. Why? My love for Apple products, combined with the fact that he was known worldwide for fighting the fight but losing his battle with this terrible disease. So it made perfect sense for me to name my design "iPlaid" for him.

Other art followed as you will see with "Peaceful Passion" for my husband, "The Blessed Man" for Count Basie, "The Dancin Man" for Patrick Swayze and many more shown below. The first 12 images in my gallery represent those we lost. It is my hope to raise awareness and much needed funds for pancreatic cancer researchers by producing what has magically come to me. Thanks to Fine Art America for this platform to show a new way to find a cure through Art.

I have custom products available on www.zazzle.com/iplaid as well as www.iplaid.org with many more designs and am also very interested in licensing my images to those who wish to help me make a difference. I thank you in advance. If you have lost a loved on, please contact me and let's talk about doing an piece for them. Blessings, Susan Fielder susan@susanfielder.com.
