As she describes herself, Susan Chater was born in England with a gardening grandmother who enriched her life with a love of gardening.
Before coming to Canada in 1980, she lived in Uganda and Alaska where she was unsuccessful at her attempts to create a garden. Once here, however, on a half-acre in Richmond Hill, she was determined to put down some roots. Her garden there proved an inspiration to her painting. Susan’s most recent move to Dundas, ON six years ago allowed her to take over an established garden which she has worked to make her own. Susan credits ORG&HPS with providing her with an education in plants and gardening, and providing a place to share with others her obsession with gardening.
