Susan Isaac, Shards Glass Studio
Susan has over 20 years’ experience as a fused glass artist and instructor. She offers people a chance to explore their creativity using a 5000 year old art form. Susan set aside her childhood passion for art while pursuing a post-secondary teaching career. Decades later her creative soul longed to burn more brightly. After experiencing abject terror and championing the inner voice, “What if I’m not artistic?”, Susan began years of instruction by talented glass art teachers, honing her skills, testing her limits by entering challenging juried art shows.
Susan now combines her teaching and artistic talents with a deep understanding of what it feels like to be afraid to express creativity. Her workshops are imaginative, skillfully planned, relaxing and fun.
