Susan Seddon Boulet

Susan Seddon Boulet (1941-1997) is considered one of founders of the visionary art movement - her beautiful and deeply moving fantasy art works are based on the deepest of our unconcious myths and world cultural legends.

Famous today for her works depicting shamans and goddesses, as well as her anthropomorphic totems, her artistic appeal continues to grow.

Susan Seddon Boulet's parents emigrated from South Africa to Brazil, where she was born in 1941. Sadly, her mother died just two years later, after the birth of her brother Patrick. Her early childhood was spent on a large ranch her father managed. Here, she developed her lifelong love for nature and animals and her deep spiritual commitments.

She came to the Bay Area of California in 1967, where she met and married Lawrence Boulet and had a son, Eric (named after her father). Her husband died of cancer in 1980, leaving Ms. Boulet to juggle work, motherhood, and the continued pursuit of her artistic career. Sadly, she herself succumbed to cancer in 1997, at age 55.

by Susan Seddon Boulet and Michael Babcock


"A visually striking, very personal tribute to the work and spirit of the late artist Susan Seddon Boulet, this book features forty-three images of bears Boulet created at various times in her career--bears ranging in tenor from rough, playful sketches to richly colored fairytale illustrations to her trademark, intricately detailed 'shamanic' paintings. Author Michael Babcock, longtime friend of the artist, uses Boulet's bear-focused work as a vehicle to explore the pivotal events of her life, the evolution of her artistic technique, and the sensibility that informed her art." book description.

"Susan Seddon Boulet uses subtle colors and a unique fusion of forms to reflect the magical and spiritual powers of shamans. In native cultures around the world, shamans are healers who traverse the boundaries between the everyday world and the spirit realm. Boulet's paintings delicately interweave images of woman, man, and beast with elements of myth and mysticism, evoking a visceral understanding of shamanism. This collection of over seventy-five images is accompanied by quotes from shamans from various cultures." book description.
