    Hi Susana,
    So glad you are Artisit of the Year! Congratulations!! We teachers at Gault Elementary School so enjoyed your time with us. We still have and use all your notes on how to keep our ancient kiln going strong. We’ve fired a lot of clay pieces since then! Looking forward to seeing your new work!
    Forever grateful,
    Pam Hernandez

    The range, breadth, and depth of Susana’s work is truly remarkable and even more impressive is her jest for educating novices about the marvels that populate her world of art! Susana is talented beyond description, and masterfully skilled in painting, sculpture, and pottery! Santa Cruz is a better hamlet because of the unbridled creative spirit that Susana brings to the local scene and, as such, we are greatly indebted to her for unselfishly sharing her art with the community. Kudos to you, Susana!
    Respectfully yours, Stuart Warner
