This exhibit is a whimsical and fun floral and nature display and sale of larger than life floral prints and quirky graphics.   Susannah is a Florida native, lover of nature and cultural experiences.

“Born and raised in Lake Wales, FL, I owe my love of nature to my father, who took us hunting and fishing every weekend in Central Florida. Some of my best childhood memories were from catching bass with my dad, sitting on tree stands and watching the sunrise, and sitting around campfires listening to ghost stories. My mother was a huge influence as well; an artist by training, she shuffled me to art classes as a child, where I learned about art composition while drawing and painting,” says Susannah.

Susannah’s artwork is fresh, happy and visceral.  She uses photography to shoot what she sees in front of her, and quickly captures it in print.  Photography allows instant results, which is what makes Susannah’s artwork accessible for everyone to enjoy. 

“I consider myself one of the luckiest people on earth because I have a career that allows me to do what I love: walk around in nature and share with others the beauty that is around us all the time. I hope that you, too, can enjoy the pictures of nature on your walls,” says Susannah.

Visitors to the house can experience this exhibit while taking a guided tour.  Tours, offered hourly, begin at 12 p.m., with the last admission at 3 p.m.  In addition to historic tours and art exhibits, the house offers programs, events, and wedding and venue rentals.
