My name is Susan Teller, and I’m an artist based in the Chicago area.
Much of my inspiration stems from the natural world. There are whole unseen worlds just under our feet that we don't even know about. I am particularly fascinated by how plants and other organisms communicate with each other throughout nature. For example trees send messages of distress, and signals to help each other. My artwork explores these unseen and seen worlds around us.
I work in mixed media, watercolor, inks, modeling paste, gesso, and gels. Both man-made and natural found objects find a way into my art.
