Susan Clifton was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and studied at Philadelphia College of Art and Moore College of Art. Although her focus in college was fine art she quickly adapted her eye to commercial creative endeavors.

Her work as a fashion art director had her rubbing elbows with photographers Richard Avedon and Francesco Scavullo.

In 1987, Susan moved to South Florida and designed fashion catalogs for Lillie Rubin and Swim n' Sport in Miami. In 1996, she changed the focus of her business to web design and marketing.

Susan never stopped painting over the years since college and exhibits frequently in the South Florida area.

She hopes her book Build Your Own Artist Website with WordPress will help fellow artist realize success on the web. Her own website continues to bring her opportunities and she wishes to share her not-so-secrets with others.
