Susan Sorrell has always had a wild imagination¯ growing up. Traveling all over the world with her father's job, she has had to entertain herself with all kinds of arts and crafts. She didnt become serious about art, until she made it her major at Winthrop University. Earning a Bachelor's degree in Visual Design, Susan worked for a short time as a graphic artist, then decided to get her Masters in Education at Converse College, to teach art. Being around children was a great way to get her creative juices flowing, so she quit after 12 years and became a full time artist. Susan calls herself a mixed media artist, since she likes to dabble in a lot of different medias. She has been working with textiles since 1998 and hasn't tired of it yet. Combining painting, sewing, beading and embellishing on fabric has opened new avenues to express herself. Her pieces are whimsical, colorful and have a personal theme. Susan likes to draw her inspirations from her life and what is happening in the world. Her recent series of work, Southern Fried Fiber¯ and Garden Blooms is inspired by her Southern roots. Susan lives in Greenville, South Carolina.
