Artist Bio


Like a burning candle within my soul, surrounded by the darkness of night, art has continuously taken me on many journeys of self expression and realization. Beacause those injured and beaten down rarely speak, I find cause to fulfill a creative purpose. My ultimate goal is to encourage and to uplift human hearts through the universal language of art. ©2000 Susan Stone Salas
