A writer and an artist, Susan Statham graduated from and studied at: Algonquin College; The University of Waterloo; OCAD; the National Portrait Academy and Fleming College. She has travelled to and attended workshops in New York,N.Y.; Florence, Italy and London, England.
The inspiration for The Painter’s Craft came from one sentence in one art class -
“Cobalt violet is the most poisonous oil paint.”
The Cover image for The Painter’s Craft is Ms. Statham’s oil painting, ‘Hope’. She has also painted the 6 other oils that provide her protagonist Maud Gibbons with clues to solving the mystery.

The art of The Painter's Craft

For my first and fabulous book launch, (thank you to everyone who attended and for making it a sell out) I displayed the 6 paintings from my novel. During the past few weeks I have continued to refine the images - recognizing that a painting is never finished it's merely abandoned. When I feel ready to abandon these oils, I'll get photos, post them on my web page and keep you posted too.

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Thrill turns to horror when Maud Gibbons inherits a masterpiece from her former art instructor. The celebrated Charles Venable has painted her a coded picture of his own murder. But she’s not the only one to inherit a mysterious work of art. The realization that Charles spent his final months painting her clues has Maud wondering if he was a victim of homicide or delusion. As she deciphers his painted narratives, all doubt dissolves.
