Susan Lenz is a full time, professional studio artist in Columbia, South Carolina. She has both a "home" studio for 3D sculptural and installation work and a fiber art studio at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios. Her work has been juried into numerous national and international exhibit, featured in solo shows all over the United States, and shown on television and in print. She has been awarded four full scholarship art residencies and several "Best of Show" ribbons.
Generally using needle and thread for self-expression, Susan Lenz works to articulate the accumulated memory inherent in discarded things. She seeks a partnership with her materials, their purposes, values, and familiar associations. Memory, universal mortality, and personal legacy are central themes. Vintage and recycled materials are combined with meticulous handwork. Susan is drawn to textiles for their tactile qualities and often makes work that is meant to touch and be touched.TEACHING:
