One thought on “Resume

  1. Susan- I graduated in 1975 from Rosati a few years after you and was also an art student. I have been asked by Rosati to chair an event called “Unique Boutique”, it will be a girls night out of shopping with a silent auction. I would love to be able to put one of your pieces in the silent auction. Please contact me to let me know if you would be at all interested. Thanks Mary Wamser-Scannell
