image of About Susan Stephen

Take everything you like seriously, except yourselves.
Rudyard Kipling

I've been drawing and painting almost as long as I've been breathing. A graduate of the Alberta College of Art & Design (now Alberta University of the Arts) with a degree in painting, I was fortunate enough to also study drawing and film at the San Francisco Art Institute. I then took a 15-year detour through Alberta's tourism industry, working in marketing and project management and seeing much of our beautiful world. In 2007 I returned to my hometown of Calgary to strike out on my own. I earned a Master Design certificate from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT)…and have been making my living as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator ever since.

When I'm not producing a wide variety of creative, thoughtful design solutions for a wide variety of clients, I can be found getting paint under my fingernails, digging up vegetables in the backyard (weather permitting), or exploring new paths with a small dog.

Let's get together

If you need an imaginative, reliable and experienced graphic designer; if you'd like to go for a coffee; if you have a secret tomato-growing tip—give me a call or send a note—I'd love to hear from you.
