From the Best of Craftsman
Susanna Blunt is a native born Canadian who had the opportunity to display her love of country through this iconic rendering of Queen Elizabeth II. Such is her artistic vision that she touches on multiple mediums and excels at them all, from her trompe l’oeil paintings to the optical illusion room that can be viewed at the Vancouver Science World museum. It was on the back of these accolades that she was selected to be one of the 8 artists competing to create a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, based in part on the work of her portraits. Working from a photograph, she went on to create the iconic image that will be immortalized in these beautiful platinum coins.
