Linda Shanahan

Her name is Susan Carter Carter

Not a person who works harder

Gets her silver classes running

Susan has no time for funning

Plans, prepares, and teaches too

Tells her students what to do

Precise and detailed is her style

You’ll get it right after awhile

Done it all from chains to rings

Pendants, bracelets, other things

Creative best describes this girl

Take her class, give it a whirl

Learn to saw and flux and pickle

Work with silver, not with nickel

Solder, tumble then you’ll shine

Until your piece is looking fine

She’ll help you set a stone or two

She’ll make you do it without glue

Sue teaches silver, inlay, chains

To do this she’s got the brains

Susan’s been around awhile

On her face you’ll find a smile

Inspire you? Inspired me!

Come and take her class you’ll see.

No, I didn’t make a typo; Susan’s last name is Carter Carter. That’s right. Susan Carter married Michael Carter in 1971, thus making her a double Carter. Susan is one of our more seasoned artists, and comes to us from the East Coast where she moved around growing up, ending on Long Island. Art is her major passion, but she was also involved in athletic swimming, running, and now playing tennis. Susan has a master’s degree from Pratt Institute and bachelor’s from Hofstra University, both in New York State. Having spent a summer studying in Tokyo at Sophia University, she developed an appreciation for Japanese art. Much of her printmaking art is influenced by Japanese esthetic. She taught high school art for 19 years, specializing in drawing and painting, fashion, jewelry, lost wax casting, and creative crafts. In addition, she taught junior college for 27 years as an adjunct, adding fine arts studio classes in watercolor and 2D design to her list. Susan has had exhibits and exhibitions all over this country, as well as in China, Taiwan, Japan, Germany, Spain, and Australia.

She and Michael moved to Sun Lakes in 2006, drawn in by the SLRGS shop and tennis courts. They recently became parents of an eight-week-old mid-sized poodle named Party. Needless to say, there has been a slight disruption of peace in their household. Susan is a lover of reading and board/card games. She also enjoys travel, and has visited every continent with the exception of Ant fashion dissertation examples here source url viagra pills buy essay writing services reviews blog get link book of college application essays provera and no period cialis readstown venda de cialis online chapter 3 thesis research design creative writing tasks for year 10 source url is it bad for teenagers to take viagra masculinity in media essay ameritrade case study solution que es una cialis buy university essays online go site evaluative essay tips side effects daily use viagra cialis tara hills viagra para la mujer en uruguay essay scholarships for undergraduate students see ARTica. She served the Sun Lakes Rock, Gem and Silver Club as museum curator for three years and silver chair for two. Teaching Silver 1, 2, and Chains, she would love to have you join her classes. In Susan’s words, “I get much joy from teaching. I love seeing the look of satisfaction and pride on beginning students’ faces when things click for them.” If you are interested in taking a class from Susan, check our website at Susan’s work, plus that of eight other artists, will be available for purchase at our Holiday Sale (Dec. 1-20) by appointment-only, for social distancing purposes.
