Sparkly things to work with
Susan began making art as a child of about ten. “My sisters were older and we spent a lot of time at home and often alone,” Susan says. “I found that my fantasy /inner life was very rich and always wanted to draw, paint, and make jewelry. I had a calling from a young age to make things.”
Her grandparents had a costume jewelry business and she always had bits of sparkly things to work with. “My parents were very focused on plants and nature and I think I was also influenced by that,” she recalls.
Soft and rounded forms
“I love the work of many female sculptors,” Susan says. “Eva Hesse, Ruth Asawa, and Judy Pfaff come to mind. I’m enamored with their exploration and use of materials. I also love the soft and rounded forms and structures from nature that they utilize.”
Advice to young artists
“I would like to tell young artists that if they have no other choice but make art then that is their calling and they will find a way to make it work,” Susan says.
