Susan Adams Bentley is an author, teacher and artist living in Hacienda Heights, California. She lives with her husband and best friend, Bob.
Music has been a big part of Susan's life. She started piano lessons when she was 8 years old. She loves music and was a featured piano soloist with the San Gabriel Symphony Orchestra, and was a solo performer for many years. She continues to compose, teach, and occasionally sing, and considers music to be a true blessing in her life.
Her newer artistic endeavor started in 1986 when she started decorative painting. Although she wasn't sure she could learn to paint since she couldn't draw well, she decided to take a class anyway. After being frustrated because she was unable to easily find resources to answer her decorative painting questions, she decided to write her own book. That book, the Acrylic and Fabric Painter's Reference Book, is now in its Fourth Edition.
Susan loves to teach. Her piano lessons are held in her home studio in Hacienda Heights, California. She no longer teaches decorative painting, but rather concentrates on teaching piano.
Susan loves watching the joy of discovery on a student's face when they learn that they too can play the piano.
