About Susan

I love art and it as been part of my life my entire life, drawing all the time as a child. I took that mastery of art and math and physics to study architecture in college. I have studied art and architecture at the top schools in the country: MIT, Rice, SF Art Institute, CalPoly and have worked for multiple FAIA award winning architects on a variety of well known projects. I have been drawing my entire life and painting and photographing.

I have 20 years experience working as an architect and I have experience teaching children the arts as taught art and science at my own children's schools. Everyone is an artist. I can help you.

Art was always my favorite subject! Yes I could do well in any subject to go to the schools that I did and the jobs that I had but art was always my soul and everyone is an artist, everyone has something to say and a unique vision.

Architecture

I have a degree in Architecture from the number one architectural design school in the country, Rice University. I have studied architecture at Rice, MIT, and Cal Poly being the top student of my class at Cal Poly. I have worked the top historic preservation architect in the country, Martin Eli Weil, who founded architectural preservation society in the city of Los Angeles. I worked for Frank Gehry as designer of original pivotal to his career taking design to a new direction of the Disney Concert Hall, I have worked for the top high tech architectural design firm of Silicon Valley as their designer. I believe I am more than qualified.

Drawing

I was considered a child prodigy attending University of Texas Dallas as a nine year old taking painting classes and winning awards in the State Fair of Texas all of childhood for my art work. In high school every year I won all categories of art show - painting, drawing, sculpture and mixed media. I got into every major art school when I finished high school but chose to study architecture - and art. Clients paid 500 dollars an hour to the firms I worked for just to have me design things for them. I am more than qualified to teach drawing.

Painting

I have won multiple awards in painting from a young age at the State Fair of Texas, a child prodigy taking oil painting at the University of Texas as a grade schooler and at Palo Alto Art in high school. Won art competitions every year of high school in painting oil and watercolor and acrylic. In College studied painting at San Francisco Art Institute, MIT and Rice Univ. Produced many professional watercolors for design development of professional projects in architecture.
