About the Artist: Susan Detwiler

Susan has called herself an artist from the time she was a small child and discovered the joys of creating art, anything from drawing to making her own doll clothes. Her dresser top was always dotted with [temporary] works of art made from modeling clay. This led to exploring other forms of sculpture in her teens. In college Susan majored in fine art and science. During and after college she dabbled in local theater, creating sets, costumes, and props. In the 90s Susan became intrigued by polymer clay after seeing it demonstrated on "The Carol Duvall Show." She bought an Atlas pasta machine and began experimenting, not always successfully. Then she met some fellow polymer clay artists who pointed her in the right direction and hasn't looked back since. Susan's primary work in polymer clay involves sculpture. She especially enjoys creating and engineering interactive pieces that invite the viewer to pick them up for further exploration.
