Susan's animal guide is anything with wings, which is why she decided to attach wings to her hand-crafted dress pieces. She has often commented on how she feels guided by her angels, intuitively moving her hands and freeing her creative mind to be totally connected into the process and spirit of the work. Most of her angel pieces begin with a one-of-a-kind sculpted dress form, influenced by her MFA in costume design. And then she adds the wings.
