Susan Frauenheim Bradley

Susan Frauenheim Bradley found her love for riding and showing at the Buffalo Saddle and Bridle Club at age seven, and has been involved ever since.

“Horse show parenting” through 4-H, Hunter/Jumper, and AQHA events, Susan also enjoyed showing as an amateur. The horses Susan sees at these vastly different events (from backyard ponies in 4-H to million dollar horses in international level competitions) add variety and authority to her artwork.

Although best known for her truly realistic and expressive Equine works, Susan’s passion for riding, travel, and nature creates stunning landscapes, still-life, and unique southwestern works. Susan utilizes the technique of trompe l’oeil in her realistic works, creating the illusion that the subjects really exist, instead of being a two-dimensional painting. This translates well into her commissioned works, giving a special style to each client’s piece.

Susan’s artwork has won numerous awards in competitions and several have been honored as Best of Show. In 2007, Susan was accepted in to WAOW (Women Artists Of The West) as an Associate Member.
