Susanne´s watercolor paintings can be described as a quote from Lund diocese Åkersberg:
"Through the brittleness of the watercolor, the overlaps of the transparent colors, dreamy motifs are depicted with a mysterious atmosphere. In these secret worlds there is a feeling of freedom and Nordic magic. The intangible but constantly present which is interpreted differently depending on the viewer."
