Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Susan Pettee


Update: Garlands of the Gods, a book by Mary Taylor Simeti and illustrated by me, was published on December 14, 2018, in Palermo Sicily, by Palermo University Press. Along with the publication, the Orto Botanico (Botanic Garden) of the University of Palermo had an exhibition of my illustrations in its exhibition building, Sala Tineo, from December through March 2020. The University has bought all the illustrations for its collection, and will show the exhibition, with informative labels in Italian and English by Mary, in other places in Italy. The book only recently became available in the US through Ingram Spark, the distributor, and is available on Amazon. It is in English, BTW.

This book was several years in the making, and entailed lots of trips to Sicily in different seasons to see and draw and paint the plants. It is about the luxuriant plants and flowers that visitors encounter at Sicily's archaeological sites, and it offers some botanical information as well as literary references to the plants and the mythology surrounding them. It's fun to read, and it was fun to work on.

Otherwise we still live in Great Barrington, though we travel sometimes: last August to Alaska, and this March in China. We sing with an ambitious local chorus, Crescendo, that supplements our voices with professionals so we sound really good.

Best wishes to all. Have a wonderful reunion. I am too dug in here to come to Bethesda, and I am very glad to be out of the DC climate, both weather and politics.

What I Have Done Since 1957:
After college I studied art for one year at Boston Museum School but married Ned Maguire and left to have son Edward in December 1963 and daughter Amanda in 1965. We moved to Washington in 1969, where I lived till 2003. Divorced Ned 1978; married Mike Wise 1987.

In the early 1970s I did printmaking, exhibited in local galleries, taught etching at Glen Echo. Then I worked my way through American University law school, got my J.D. in 1979 and Joined FTC's Bureau of Competition. Surprisingly, antitrust has turned out to be a ticket to see the world, starting with my official exchange with the German Bundeskartellamt in 1982. Mike and I have traveled a lot, mostly on his OECD missions, including some unlikely places like Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, New Zealand, and Iceland. In the past year we've been to Jerusalem, Ljubljana (Slovenia), Moscow, Rome (twice), London, and Sicily, as well as day trips from Paris, where we have lived since 2003. I'm enjoying staying put for longer in Great Barrington, Massachusetts since Mike retired in the spring of 2010.

I started doing botanical art in the late 1990s and have had works in exhibitions in DC, NY, Paris, and Périgueux. I have a certificate in botanical drawing and painting from the Royal Society of Botanical Artists in England and have studies with Anne-Marie Evans in England. I continue to draw and paint in Great Barrington, where MIke and I also sing with a choir and other groups. I am illustrating a book on Sicilian wildflowers.

We have six grandchildren: my son's Teddy and Livia in New Jersey; Mike's daughter's Julian and Ophelia in Denver, CO, and Mike's son's Zoe and Ian in Portland, OR. Now that we have a house in the Berkshires and Mike's sister and her family and Mike's mother live in Cambridge, the center of gravity has become Massachusetts. Only my daughter Amanda still lives near Washington, where she married Christopher Szendroi in November, 2012.
