As a fiber and mixed media artist, Susan Schrott synthesizes her life experiences into deeply personal, uplifting images. In this video visit to her studio in Sag Harbor, Schrott describes how her exquisite hand dyed fabrics, intense threadwork, and embellishments, add visual texture and depth.

Schrott’s artwork has gained critical attention and numerous awards, including a first place and a prestigious Judge’s Choice award at the Pen and Brush in New York City. She has had several solo gallery exhibitions and exhibited nationally in group shows. Her artwork appears in permanent installations and private collections and several pieces have been selected for inclusion in quilting magazines and art books. Most recently, she is the author and illustrator of a book of reflections, “Rise with Radiance: 365 Days of Inspiration.”
