Listening to all the exceptional music in this community is her regular past time. She and her husband Dan bought property in Sisters in 2001 and built their dream home and studio here. She moved here full time from Eugene, upon his untimely death in 2010.Susie early on got involved in giving back to this community in 2002, by donating to the My Two Hands auction, and has donated significantly each year since.
Susie attended Southern Oregon University, University of Oregon, and received most all of her commercial art training from the Academy of Art, in San Francisco, California.
