Mom, Wife, Blogger, Entrepreneur & More

Ayeee, I’m Susan, I’m what one would call a salty bitch. I’m also known as the Salty Designer. 👩‍🎨
I’m crafty and a little crazy. I’m mom of 2 humans and 2 felines and wife to 1 human.
I’m bipolar and recently starting to think adhd as well given the common symptoms in a female. 🤷🏼‍♀️
I love horror and true crime. I’m blessed to have a spouse that’s just as obsessed as I am. Makes me feel less crazy. 😜

Feel free to ask questions if you want to learn more about me!

Xoxo, Susan 💋

My Fave Portraits

Susan's favorite portrait picks!

I love creating digital portraits and bringing joy to my customers. These are my favorite pieces that I have done to date!



My best friend Kyle passed 2 days after my 21st birthday on July 27, 2011.
I can see where improvements are needed but nonetheless it brings me joy to look at this portrait I've done in his memory.



My beautiful niece Vera Luna graduated 2021
I love the fun textures and colors in this one. ❣️


A Boy & His Duck

This was a commissioned piece I did for a customer of her son and his duck. The original photo used for inspo was not in an outdoor setting. I created this outdoor setting to better suit the portrait and make it more memorable.
