Susan Lenz



My name is Susan Lenz.  I am an American daughter of German immigrants.  I am a happy wife for just over thirty-nine years as I married my first and only love. I am a homeowner, a businesswoman, a custom picture framer, a taxpayer, a non-practicing Catholic, a member of a few non-profit organizations, a college graduate, a blogger, and Ernie the Cat's "partner in crime"!

Most personally, I am an ARTIST.

My studio is located at Mouse House, Inc. at 2123 Park Street in downtown Columbia, South Carolina. I stitch both by hand and machine but also indulge a passion for book arts and unique, 3D found art objects. Altering found photos is an obsession. My work has appeared in national publications, numerous juried exhibitions, and at fine craft shows including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Smithsonian Craft Shows. I've been featured on art quilting television programs and on South Carolina Etv's Palmetto Scene. My work is in the permanent collection of the Textile Museum in Washington, DC and the McKissick Museum in South Carolina. The Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina represents me.

A PERFECT One-Minute Introduction to Me!
