I’m Susan MacLeod, visual artist and graphic facilitator.
I draw large images with colour on mural size paper during meetings, conferences, keynote speakers or simple conversations. Together with words, the images give people a new perspective and help with listening, feeling heard, and remembering later. Fun to do and fun to watch.
I can draw quick portraits in real time that can be slipped into a frame and given as speaker gifts on the spot. And I can do more formal portraits. Pen, ink, gouache and watercolour are my preferred media. Currently, I’m doing portraits of authors at their book launches.
Humans of Saint Vincent's
There’s a lot going on in a nursing home. I capture it with quick drawings that illustrate the spirit of the residents and caregivers at Saint Vincent’s Nursing Home, Halifax, Nova Scotia. It’s a personal passion.
Some random drawings and cartoons apropos of nothing really.
