I don't really know when I started to make small clay things but when I did, I couldn't stop.It's where you can lose yourself as if you were "Alice in Wonderland" or a fairy magical garden. It delighted me and I saw that it also brought so much joy to those young and old. I am drawn to clean simple lines, repeating patterns and textures. I love the ocean and birds and try to incorporate them in my pottery.
Being creative is a big part of Susan's life. At first it was sewing, then card making and all things paper. She once took a bookbinding class, then proceeded to teach everyone she knew hwo to bind a book. When she ran out of friends and family to teach, she started teaching at Continuing Education classes in the Lower Mainland. She's been hooked on pottery since 2015 and finds the versatility of clay challenging and fascinating.
Her diploma in Graphic Design and Illustration from Capilano College gave Susan the foundation for balance, layout, color, and design which comes in handy in all aspects of life.
