Susan Brackett likes to create jewelry with beads and silver; and art with pastels, pencil, and acrylic.
I'm originally from the Metro Los Angeles area where my artistic ability was uncovered. Following the revelation, I was taken to a family friend who worked for a well known LA designer for private art instruction.
When I first entered college I continued to follow this path majoring in fine art. During this period I received instruction in drawing, painting, sculpture, 2D design, and figurative art before venturing out on my own.
Starting in the 90's I changed goals for a number of years and completed undergraduate and graduate Geography programs. My studies focused on regional, urban, and environmental areas of the human condition and our sense of place. It was this sense of place involving public art in my thesis that sparked an interest in creating art again. During this period is when I took up jewelry making and found it addicting.
Today I've reinvested myself in my art opening two shops. Taking this daring move is my dream.
