Born- Bogota, Colombia

She has always had a passion for art and dance, and discovered her love of jewelry making in a high school class. Susan studied professional jewelry techniques with the Revere Academy (San Francisco, California), and she received a Bachelor and a Master of Fine Art from San Jose State University (San Jose, California) with a concentration on mixed media sculpture including large metal casting and fabrication, along with installation and performance art. This focus inspired a direction integrating organic, ephemeral materials with metals in art and jewelry.

She enjoys time in nature, traveling, many kinds of dance, reading, being with animals, and especially spending time with her family and amazing friends.

She continues to create and thrive in Northern California.
