Bio – Born in Melbourne Australia, the eldest of five children, Susan Daily grew up in Myrtleford in country Victoria. As a teenager she boarded at Loreto Toorak where her artistic skills were developed. Susan entered the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the 1960s. She studied Fashion Design, furthering her passion for design and colour. Susan specialises in silk painting and in graphics using a variety of mediums including the iPad graphic apps. She shares her skills with teachers and parishes in workshops and in the many publications of her graphics.
Susan has worked in remote Australian communities helping to establish art centres. In 2014 Susan received an OAM (Order of Australia Medal) for her work in Aboriginal communities and for her religious graphics.
