Commissions for underwater art  - begins with an underwater photo shoot at your location or in the artist’s heated salt water pools at the Jersey Shore or SWFL gulf coast or on location in any natural clear waters.  Our goal is to create beautiful images to begin to paint and create with. Clothing choices are allow for movement and flow. Susan will guide and will have several options available.

The selection of images to work with usually is Susan’s although you may elect to meet giving your  selections. The painting and creativity is Susan's art making.

Susan travels anywhere  - passport ready. The session will take some time, and Susan will coach you with underwater movement.  The wonderful thing is that this artwork works for all ages.  Our pools are comfortable, private and we can work in areas with you can easily stand.  I hear how memorial the experience is, that people feel wonderful, beautiful and peaceful.

 Retainers begin at $1500 plus travel expenses.

Depending upon the artwork, size, requirements, time of year, etc.,  commissions may take anywhere from several days to several months.

Susan's portrait sessions are scheduled to allow each person or family the time to move with comfortablility on their schedule. This creates an environment that are stress free, fun experiences. With just one session per evening there is flexibility for weather  (time of day with changes of sun and clouds, etc). Whatever  amount of time needed to photograph, relax or play  is part of the session.  We'll photograph in several ways, places  and move taking time to create an atmosphere that is also a memory.
