Susan Lenz is a full time, professional studio artist in Columbia, South Carolina. Her studio is located at Mouse House, Inc. at 2123 Park Street where she has both a studio for 3D sculptural and installation work and a separate fiber art studio. She stitches both by hand and machine but also indulges a passion for book arts and unique, 3D found art objects. Altering found photos is an obsession. Susan's work has appeared in national publications, numerous juried exhibitions, and at fine craft shows including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Smithsonian Craft Shows. She has been featured on art quilting television programs and on South Carolina Etv's Palmetto Scene. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Textile Museum in Washington, DC and the McKissick Museum in South Carolina. Susan is represented by the Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, and her solo shows and installations have been mounted all over the country.


Susan was selected for the spring artist-in-residence at Guadalupe Mountains National Park in western Texas and a summer experience at Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge in Mississippi. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, these residencies have both been postponed until 2021. Susan was also selected as the one-and-only artist for a residency at Great Basin National Park in Nevada and had a fabulously inspirational two-weeks there in October.
