A totem is a guardian spirit being. They aid in self-discovery and capture our imagination, giving us amazing avenues of self-expression and awareness.

Susan gathers elements from the natural world to create art objects that hint at a deep connection. Working with mixed-media, Susan creates totems  that bring myth to life.
