I aim to express the meanings and emotions of what makes us human
and explore how humans foolishly meddle and tamper with themselves
and animals on a genetic, physical and psychological level.  We persist
in being human, despite tinkering dangerously with others and ourselves

Susanne Apgar’s artistic impulses appear to have been triggered or perhaps galvanized by a simple surrealist
coffee-table art book in her childhood home. Amazed and obsessed by the peculiar images like a fur-covered
cup and spoon, long legged elephants and outed inner visions, her path was set. Permission granted.  
Susanne was born in New Jersey and raised in Montreal.   After completing a BA in Psychology she studied
Illustration and Design at Dawson College followed by Fine Arts at Concordia University.  She generally works
in oils and is currently spending time on gallery work as well as freelancing in editorial, advertising and book
illustration. Her paintings are exhibited in galleries across Canada and the U.S.   She currently lives and works
in Toronto.
