Michi Susan


A native of Tokyo, Japan, Michi Susan has called Oklahoma home for almost three decades.  By the age of five, she knew she wanted to be an artist.  She studied at Japan’s Women’s University and  Hosei University and continued her studies in the United States. 

She was first attracted to the work of the realists, but eventually she explored collage and mixed media, blending the delicate and the detailed in an extraordinary way.  She says everything is worthy of a landscape collage – people, places and experiences.  She believes “everyone interprets art differently and it speaks to people in many ways – if you feel a certain way from somebody’s painting, that’s it.” 

In 1978, Michi moved to Oklahoma City; and established her reputation as a mixed media artist.  An award-winning artist, she is internationally recognized and is included in many private and corporate collections.  She received the Paseo Arts Association’s Artist of the Year Award in April of 2007.
