Susan creates handcrafted stained glass art emphasizing Judaic themes. Each piece commemorates joyous life cycle events, illustrates Jewish customs, or is used in ceremonial life. Stained glass adds dimensions of dynamic beauty, unparalleled in other art media, through the interplay of colored glass with ambient light. For over 20 years, Susan has created a wide selection of art ranging from attractive boxes and figurines to large window panels. Her current work focuses on themes taken from Jewish life and her own developing awareness of Jewish tradition. "I receive from my art as much as I put into it, " says Susan. As she concentrates on depicting Jewish themes, her own life is enriched, which in turn, enriches her creations. Susan's art is represented in juried art shows and exhibitions nationwide. Her commissioned art pieces are displayed internationally in galleries, synagogues, and private homes. Susan also conducts classes in the art and mechanics of stained glass, trains Judaic educators at national conventions, and advises a steady stream of apprentices. She is a member of Artistes, the National Capital Stained Glass Guild, and the American Guild of Judaic Artists.
