A retired high school art teacher, Susan has a degree in Painting and Art Education from Birmingham Southern College and a Master's Degree in Education with a Concentration in Ceramics from the University of Montevallo. Outside the classroom, she has worked as a professional artist, muralist, ceramic artist, and sculptor. She taught Raku classes for adults for over 10 years, and many students now work as professional artists. Her passion for art and teaching are equal. She continues to share her joy for art through oil painting classes for adults. She also teaches classes for high school students who plan to pursue art in college or have a passion for the visual arts. Since retirement from teaching high school art, she has had more time to create art for herself. She and her husband enjoy life on Smith Lake in Houston, Alabama. She teaches classes in Birmingham and in Arley. She is enjoying the freedom of living a dream by being given the opportunity and ability to spend time immersed in nature and art and sharing it with friends and clients.
