Susan Seddon-Boulet is considered one of the founding members of the American Visionary Art Movement. Her magnificent works are widely held in collections around the world.

Susan Seddon-Boulet's art continues to exert a profound influence on the lives that it touches. Anais Nin wrote:

"These figures are out of our dreams, those which flee from us upon awakening, those which are dispersed like dew at dawn, those which fall apart between our fingers like dust-roses.

Susan has a more muted step, or perhaps she is invisible...more soft-voiced, soft-gestured, as the images do not escape from her. She can return from her voyages with intact descriptions...from places never visited by us but which we remember."

No, there are a lot of good female artists out there; don't listen to the usual claptrap troublemakers like to spread. From what I've learned, they have made significant contributions to all sorts of styles such as Impressionism and Surrealism for example, they just never quite had a figure to spearhead a big movement in the same way say Picasso and Braque did for Cubism. But who knows, history has constantly been corrected and rewritten with plenty of missing jigsaw pieces still to be scoured. The Bayeux tapestry was said to be woven by a group of nuns but was later disputed. What they definitely lack though is the publicity accorded to their male counterparts, particularly when breaking into the mainstream. I think that word of mouth is a powerful way of spreading info and I hope mine could provide a leg up even if it's a mere drop in the ocean.
