For thirteen years, she has lived and worked at her home/studio in Duncan, BC.
Clay is a marvelous medium, its trans-formative nature has kept Susan intrigued and productive for 55 years. She attended her first clay course at the Pasadena Art museum in 1965. They made Egyptian paste beads and hanging sculptures and she still has hers!
Susan is a traveler. She photographs when she is away from her home/studio base. She gets influenced by all she sees and experiences. She is partial to repetitive patterns found in nature, architecture and everyday items particularly clouds. She explores the shapes, the drama and shadows and the movement of clouds. The clay allows for the exploration of 3-D work and the photos capture her experiences in real time.
