Artist, Poet, Editor

Susan Gardner

I have worked to evolve a coherent view of the world, a map to guide myself with as few obscuring detours as possible as I put one foot in front of the other.

I’ve spent my life — so far — making art and poetry, loving libraries and books, thinking about Buddhist philosophy, and building houses. Whatever happens, I keep going.

I work as a poet, artist, and poetry editor. My seven books are the continuation of my almost 50-year career as a visual artist. I write in English and Spanish and occasionally in Japanese. In recent years I have been the founding editor and co-publisher of Red Mountain Press.

In exploring meaning beyond image, she seeks out the true nature of transitory moments unfiltered by preconception. She reveals the essential lyrical qualities of her subject matter. She obscures the boundary between visual and poetic form and by doing so greatly extends our view of natural reality. Her work bridges our sense of memory with a unifying sense of the present.

Gardner has lived and worked in Asia, Mexico and Europe as well as the United States and Canada.
