Susan Seddon Boulet lived life in search of the magnificent. As a child growing up on a Brazilian farm, she developed a deep affection for animals and loved making colorful sketches of them. From these formative experiences, she found her destiny, one that deeply affected people all over the world. This beautiful, moving retrospective by Michael Babcock recounts Susan Boulet's artistic development and celebrates her extraordinary personal journey. It includes more than two hundred reproductions of her unique and wondrous paintings, some never before published, along with photographs chronicling the events of her life from Brazil to California.
