Susan has always been interested in what she calls “grass roots visual language.” She has observed the many parallels that exist all over the world in tribal arts, with virtually the same motif, carving styles, and mythical images occurring in many different cultures. Fascinated by the realization that some pieces that she has seen in museums could be mistaken for her own ancestral art if it were displayed in that context, she immediately recognizes artistic simularities with the Mapache, New Guinea, Annu, Afrikpo, and the Māori cultures. The Sacred Weave presented here is an attempt to connect the Salish and the Māori by using a large woven format, representative of basketry, which was a common practice in both cultures. The motifs within the weave relate to the circle of life, on and above Mother Earth, and elements of the continuing cycles of change.

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.
