Susan Lenz

Susan Lentz resides in Columbia, SC.

Using layers of polyester velvet, metallic foiling, and recycled acrylic felt, Susan Lenz works reflects her passion for historic buildings, especially stained glass windows and the colors and eco-friendly ideals of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a 20th century Austrian artist and architect. The work is the result of hand-guided, free-motion machine embroidery and melting techniques, a unique process that Susan developed herself. Each piece builds on the last in an exploration of design motifs and stitched symbols. Susan is originally from Columbus, Ohio where she earned a degree in Medieval and Renaissance Studies from The Ohio State University.
