    Thank you for introducing me to Susan. Absolutely fabulous! About 30 years ago when I lived north of Seattle I remember taking the ferry from Whidbey Island over to Port Townsend, WA where she lives for a day of antique shopping. Love Port Townsend. Love her work.

      How wonderful. I have never visited that part of the country. Susan’s murals plus your exquisite creations and collected antiques are sort of a match made in heaven I’d say! When the art is this beautiful, I don’t think one could ever tire of it or want to change a thing. xox
