  1. So great meeting you today! What a small world w/North County roots & Burroughs & art connections! I’ll check out your window at the new guild! Who knew? That I’d run into an artist on my first solo Artists date with myself!
    Don’t forget to check out Process Painting and the cgjungstl.org!

  2. Hi Susan! I took your classes at jacoby a few years back and worked with you at your studio for awhile! Hope everything is well!! I was wondering if you know of any places still doing ceramic classes or a studio membership type deal. I heard jacoby isn’t doing it anymore and I’m missing the clay!! Thanks!!

  3. Hi Susan.

    I took several classes with you in the early 90’s atSIUE.

    Our oldest daughter passed recently. We are looking for a vessel to hold her ashes. Is there a place that would have your work on sale?
