Susan B. Stafford

A b o u t   t h e  A r t i s t


Susan moved to Mystic in 1972 after graduating from Pratt Institute with a degree in Fine Art.

Drawn to the charm of the region, she worked as a free lance artist for ten years before marrying Calvin Stafford, a naval submarine officer. Stationed in many different places over the next ten years, they were both pleased to return to the area and Susan was anxious to begin painting local scenes that would have a special appeal to its residents and started the Sense of Community print series. She attempts to capture and convey the heart of this part of New England for the pleasure of those that live here and visit and for others that still remember this as home. To date, there are 10 paintings in this series.

Susan continues to teach art and exhibit locally. Send your email to
