Susan's Artist Statement
The inspiration for my work comes from the needlework that women have done over the centuries as creative expression at home and in the factory. Growing up and observing the interactions between my mother, grandmother and other women enlightened me to the common bonds women share. The different facets of sewing connected the women together as they shared their expertise, ideas and supplies with one another. The frustrations and tedium of the day seemed to fade away as they began their creative process.
