Susan Brabeau

Susan Brabeau graduated with a teaching degree in math and science from Michigan State University. She shares the same passion to create as her great grandfather who was a stone sculptor from Germany. Brabeau is a wife, a mother, and devoted to the care of rescue animals and often portrays animals in her work. After 25 years of constant painting and exploring her craft, she now only sees a glimmer of what she can do as an artist. Hard times have made her search her heart for what is really important and how she incorporates this into her work.

Davie St Entrance

Tedd Anderson’s mural features the iconic “dry space” characters for which the artist is known set in a landscape filled with swirling, topographic lines, jagged edges, and meditative objects and shapes. A banner with a poem scrawled on its surface runs through the piece, bringing the imagery into a cohesive whole.
