Promise is the 'promise of spring' which is one that begins with the prayer of planting-the promise that the plant and flower will emerge, and the promise of flowers which starts with the emergence of plants in a spring garden.  The blooming flowers are perfect and beautiful, fragile and transitory but which 'promise' renewal in the next season.  Another is the 'promise of parents'--to be ever present, steadfast and to do ones best every day-to try again.  Another is the promise of life in which we can appreciate each new moment, each new day as an opportunity for renewal, for creativity, for wonder.

Susan has a long history with paper that includes teaching positions in the US. She has curated exhibitions & exhibited her paper works in over 150 exhibitions worldwide. Susan creates paste papers, Itajime dyed papers and embosed papers and sewn paper collages.

   She plans on writing a book on the history of paste papers.
