Born in Atlanta Georgia in 1972, Suzanne began her metals and jewelry education in high school, continued at The University of Georgia under the gruff guidance of Gary Noffke and the patient direction of Rob Jackson. Further study with the ever tolerant Elliott Pujol at Kansas State University led her to an MFA degree which she uses daily, expounding metal and metal related ideas in a collegiate setting in San Francisco, California. Suzanne is interested in material, metaphor, line, contrast, and narrative in her work.
