Susan Day is a visual artist whose work is predominately constructed of ceramic. She has a long exhibiting history and her work has successfully straddled the worlds of contemporary craft and fine art. Susan's works have been included in various important national and international exhibits including the Body in Society, and the Embassy Cultural House Revisited at the DIA Art Foundation in New York City, the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta and La Chambre Blanche in Quebec City.
Susan received her early art education at BealArt in London, Ontario. Following that she studied at Sheridan College School of Craft and Design in Lorne Park, Ontario, ARTsake in Toronto, Ontario, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) in Halifax, Nova Scotia as well as a residency at the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta.
Susan's work investigates her interest in the body and how it relates to the natural world and is affected by the environments it lives in. Her recent black and white ceramic work is a playful exercise in positive and negative space and reflects on her early years living in Africa and extensive travelling.

Her work is representation in many public and private collections including the Canada Council Art Bank, Air Canada, the Bank of Montreal, the Bronffman Foundation, London Life, Western University, MacIntosh Gallery, the Edmonton Art Gallery, Museum London, the National Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
