About Me

I love exploring all media and styles of art.  I am particularly drawn to portraits.  I am focusing on drawing, collaging or painting a portrait and then translating that design onto fabric.  My hope is to pull the viewer into my pieces by capturing an emotion, causing a subsequent desire to feel, or wonder more about the piece. 

 

For as long as I can remember I have been creating some sort of art. I remember sewing at about 8 years old on my great grandmothers foot peddle machine in the attic at the farmhouse.  I just thought it was the coolest thing ever.  All my cousins would be playing outside, and I was up in the attic having a ball! 

Enjoying the journey!  Suzanne
