Best known for her wheel thrown birdhouses, Susan has been in love with clay since the first time her hands touched it in grade school art class. There was magic in drawing out a malleable lump of clay into something beautiful, permanent and functional. It was only natural that in her later years she would combine her passion for clay with her fondness of gardening, and her fascination with wildlife.
Susan has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and has studied at Norwich Art School, Corcoran College of Art and Design, and Paier College of Art in addition to taking independent classes. Her instructors have included Robert Epstein, David Toscano and Justin Gerace. She works from her Deep River home in a walk out basement studio with gardens just outside the door ready to offer further inspiration for her work. You can find Susan’s work at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
