4 RILEY AV, JACKSON’S POINT
Susan has been quilting for 20 years, taking her craft from traditional forms to a fresh, modern approach. Never one to “follow the rules”, she has always injected her own ideas into her creations. Dipping into colourful, quality fabric collected over the years, she creates quilts and wall hangings, plus useful tote bags and decorative cushions.
Susan attended the Ontario College of Art in the early 70s. There she studied drawing, textile design, colour theory and photography. After a career in Marketing, and yearning for a creative outlet, quilting was discovered. The endless design possibilities of using traditional piecing techniques and colour combinations fascinated her. She sews traditional patterns, somewhat altered to suit herself, plus colourful abstract designs.
A move to Georgina 20 years ago, after living in the big city, has led to a peaceful life in a beautiful landscape, with Lake Simcoe nearby. Susan enjoys participating in the annual Studio Tour, to showcase her latest creations and meet fellow art lovers.
