Susanne Vande Vyvere

A native of Winnipeg, Susanne (nee Hill), along with the other members of G4, graduated from Red River College Advertising Art and became a graphic designer.

In 1997, her friend, fellow designer and plein air painter, Barry Bonham, convinced her to begin oil painting while she enjoyed visits to the family cottage. He provided the stimulus, and the beautiful Boreal Forest in South Eastern Manitoba profoundly influenced her to find new trails to explore and breathtaking views to paint. Her love of the woods is the focus of her plein air landscape painting.
