About

Cornbread & Cappuccino is Susan and Cheryll

Cheryll: I create as meditation and am always looking for unique surfaces that will hold ink. I enjoy using paper, fabric, and small bits of interesting stuff that can be combined to create a story for myself and the viewer. I think people are attracted to my work because it engages their sense of wonder and curiosity. Hearing others tell me about what they see in my work, how it speaks to them, feeds my soul and inspires me to continue to create.

Susan: I dabble in many things: Making biodiesel, quilting, knitting, biking, gardening, blogging (copernicus66.multiply.com), photography, poetry, singing & guitar playing, church stuff, stuff with my kids, home improvement stuff.

I don't know if it's a "favorite material," but I have in my garage over 50 gallons of glycerin. It's a byproduct of my production of biodiesel fuel that I run in my VW Jetta. The process of making biodiesel happens to be very similar to the saponification process that produces soap (separating glycerin out of oil using lye). This glycerin is very useful for various things, and I can't bear to throw it out even if it wouldn't hurt the environment.

At the moment, I'm gardening like crazy, as well as knitting a cable sweater and socks, quilting, working on some backpacks, and making recycled felted mittens, slippers & purses. I have a vintage quilt top I keep meaning to finish, and I want to try some locker hook rugs and arm warmers. So little time!

I'm a big blogger. Here are my networking sites:
