I begin work every day with clean hands. Within minutes my hands are bright green, or purple, or whatever! 

 

ABOUT SUSAN

One of the reasons I enjoy clay so much is that I don’t really know how to do it.  Each illustration is a discovery process as I study nature and animals and try to figure out how to bring them to life in clay.

My finished clay critters live in pizza boxes, and I suspect that they play at night while we slumber.

I was an Art Director for fifteen years, and won some international 3D illustration awards and a Grammy nomination. But my passion is, and always has been, illustrating and writing for children. 

I am the Regional advisor for the Midsouth SCBWI, and a member of the SCBWI Bologna Team. I love to travel and have done school visits anywhere in the world from Taiwan to Alabama to Hong Kong.
