Susan is a journalist, artist and the founder of HIAA. The idea for the association came about, when she moved back to Finland after living 9 years abroad. She had been a member of API in Brussels and wanted to duplicate the great idea in Finland. In 2007 she found a like-minded artist friend and the association was born. She hopes the association will continue to promote international artists and to make their entry into the Finnish art world a little bit easier.

Her own artist career has been on the hold lately as she has focused on writing, but she always love to promote other – more talented - artists. One example of this is the radio program series she did a few years ago, with several programs on the HIAA member artists at the time.
