When you live with Susie’s work, you become part of the story she tells: desert sunsets, Borderlands legends, reflections on the Rio Grande, the wild creativity of Snake Woman and her handmaidens. Susie is an artist and teacher who works from her studio in Pipe Creek in the Texas Hill Country, a few hours drive from Big Bend National Park.

Working first in mixed media on fabric, Susie dyes, screen prints and/or digitally designs much of the fabrics she uses in large textile collages, the images that serve as inspiration for these scarves, garments, journals, cards and posters. She also can teach you how to do your own iPad art perfectly suited to RedBubble and other creative outlets in one of her Art on the iPad online courses.

Susie has taught art, creative process and design process to children, teachers, artists and writers across the country, both in person and online. Over the past 40 years, she has designed exhibits and programs and served as a consultant to numerous museums, art institutions, school districts and corporations, notably the the Museum of Modern Art, The Smithsonian Institution, Children’s Museum of San Antonio, Campfire Girls and Boys, Neiman Marcus, and Dallas Museum of Fine Arts.
