Suzanne is a multi-faceted artist and professional hand engraver whose exquisite designs can be found on glass, wood, metal, leather, and most recently, gourds!
Whether it's hand engraving, wood burning, or painting, Suzanne's visual language is unique, bold, and is inspired by the natural world, and her experiences growing up in Saskatchewan.
Suzanne has studied calligraphy and hand engraving with master craftsmen in Utah and Texas, and passes her vast knowledge on to others as a teacher.
She explains her interest in working with gourds: "While teaching Pyrography, I saw a book that had hard shelled wood burned gourds.
The colours and textures completely grabbed my attention, and I knew I was in for another creative adventure! Hard shelled gourds are one of the oldest
cultivated plants. Their unique shapes and surfaces beckon to be lovingly sculpted into works of art and it gives me great joy to create designs that celebrate their earthiness. They are my perfect canvas.”
Suzanne’s work displays a unique combination of ancient tradition and contemporary design.
In addition to gourds, you may also be surprised to find Suzanne’s designs on horseshoes, crystal ware, rifle stocks, hand tools and even egg shells.
