Illustrator Susi Galloway Newell studied heraldic arts under a master and was further inspired by
old masters and surrealists. She broadened her scope from heraldic art to fine art, illustration
and design. Her work reflects a fascination for ancient arts, illusion, vibrant colors, beautiful
scenery and unique viewpoints.
Together, Ford and Newell have worked as a team creating The Little Apple - more creative
writing and illustrating adventures to follow!
