Susi Wingenroth creates ‘Frame of Reference’ for making healthier choices to preserve planet


Susi Wingenroth is one of five artists juried into this year’s Alliance for the Arts Art Lives Here Billboard Campaign. The work that will be coming to a billboard near you is titled Frame of Reference.

“This painting shows the morning sun radiating through the cypress trees in the wild heart of the wetlands,” says Susi of Frame of Reference. “It is intended as a call to those who see it to enjoy, care for and preserve these wild places.  When we look up from our busy lives and notice our home, beautiful living planet Earth, we see a frame of reference for making healthier choices to preserve the planet for all living beings and for future generations.”

Wingenroth is a Lee County School District arts educator. Prior to her current post, Susi taught art at Canterbury School from May of 2006 through August of 2016 and Renaissance School from August of 2001 through June of 2016. She has her B.A. Fine and Studio Arts from the University of Maryland College Park.

Frame of Reference also represents an organic expression of Wingenroth’s focus on balance and maintaining a sense of natural equanimity through life’s ups and downs as both a yoga practitioner and instructor. But Susi has found a way to combine the discipline of yoga with her passion for dance, particularly African dance, belly dance and Indian dance styles. Called Bellyfit, this synthesis focuses on deep core muscles , which is crucial for proper alignment and strengthening of the back and pelvic floor.

“Bellyfit brings all of these parts of my life together in such a beautiful way,” Susi expounds. “Bellyfit combines dance with yoga for a safe and very effective holistic workout that nourishes body, mind and spirit. I was hooked from the first time I tried it!”
