“Four Seasons” is a repeat frog motif creating a table-mount frieze. For the Coast Salish the frog marks the seasons of the sacred long house activities and prestigious ceremonies. Frogs signal the beginning and closure of traditional events with their singing in the fall and spring. Once in great abundance in our community and surrounding areas, their combined voices would dominate the night… unfortunately, today, their song is little more than a distant whispering chorus over the sounds of the City.
Coast Salish (Musqueam)
Susan began making limited edition prints on her kitchen table in 1981 while working as a legal secretary. She received several early commissions, which established her reputation for innovative proposals and for completing projects on time, on budget and at the highest level. She took courses in silver, casting and carving, all of which led to monumental sculptures in mixed media, and she was the first Northwest Coast artist to work in glass. She continues to release a number of print editions each year, but her focus has been on commissioned sculpture.
