I was interviewed for a short documentary by Brad Jerome Photography, for Tinte Cellars in Woodinville, WA. I told my story of how Tinte Cellars sparked my partnership of charitable giving with Seattle Angels – a Foster Care non-profit organization  Five dollars from each sale of my photography book, “Madrona Love” I donate to Seattle Angels.  Tinte Cellars is committed to creating great wine and supporting local non-profits. You can view the film here:
You can purchase my book “Madrona Love” through my website here.

Thank you for supporting me and Seattle Angels!

$27 plus tax and shipping. $5 of every sale is donated to Seattle Angels.


In 2019 I am sequestered in my studio, experimenting and creating a new body of abstract paintings. You can see posts of these works as I add them to my website and on Instagram @susanderrickart. Please check back for exhibition news of when and where these new paintings will be available for purchase.
