ABOUT MOI:
I was born in San Francisco, California to highly educated parents, and my sister is pretty darn smart too. It's unclear if I inherited the smart genes. I graduated with a B.A. in Art from Marymount College

Over the years I illustrated and designed for newspapers, greeting card companies, in corporate graphic departments and publishing empires.

I reside with my antique dealer husband and two house rabbits in a the third oldest home in Connecticut–(honest!-no ghosts-bummer). My husband will be joining ETSY with his own shop called: "VintageUrban" soon.

ARTIST STATEMENT:
I seek to amuse. When I come up with something more profound I'll put it in here.

KUDOS:
Over the years my work in various forms has been published in:
NYTimes, DollWorld, Contemporary Doll Collector, Doll Castle News, SCBWI magazine, Color! magazine, Jane Green's Down to Earth Blog, Doll World, Scholastics, Westport Magazine, Mail Me Art, and more.

In 2007 I was invited to do something for the State Capitol's Holiday Tree by Governor Rell. I chose to needle felt a bear ornament rather than hang from the tree myself. I named him "Nutmeg" as Connecticut is the "Nutmeg" state.

ASSOCIATIONS:
I'm the founder of ODACT-www.odact.org or Original Doll Artisans of Connecticut-we're on Facebook.

I'm also a member of SCBWI-Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Licensing- my designs are finding favor with licensing clients my work will soon be seen on needlepoint canvases and gourmet ice cream labels.


That's about it.
Amusingly yours,
Suzanne
