Susan invites people to share the magic of creating with the 4000 year old art of fusing glass through owning one of her art pieces or sharing her studio space and forested acreage while creating your own art pieces.

Susan has integrated her undergrad science degree, knowledge of glass art, masters in education, decades of post-secondary teaching and over ten years as a corporate educator, to provide fused glass workshops to over 300 people. Her workshops are imaginative, skillfully planned and fun.  People hardly notice the  physics, chemistry and history they just learned. She also brings her free spirit, sense of humor and passion for glass art to her workshops.

Susan’s greatest satisfaction is when students show their creations to friends and family only to hear, “Wow! How did you do that?”

Susan began learning fusing in Kauai, May 1997, after having five lessons in stained glass under her belt and no experience in any art mediums except painting the life stages of a bee for her grade 5 teacher.  After experiencing abject terror and championing the inner voice, “What if I’m not artistic?”, Susan began years of instruction by talented glass art teachers, finding mentors and participation in juried art shows, starting with three years of entries that weren't accepted, followed by one accepted entry, followed by winning a juror’s award.
