Susan was born and raised in Boston, MA. She spent her youth at Fenway Park and Boston Garden rooting for her favorite teams.
In 2003, Susan was introduced to needle felting by Sue Young, an incredibly multi-talented artist and friend in Jay, NY, in the Adirondack Mountains. She immediately fell in love with this ancient craft, eventually turning it into her business, Artfelt Creations. Over the years, she has expanded her knowledge of felting by taking classes in nuno felting and hat making, using the wet felting process, and recently has created several new items such as felted dog jackets, felted soap, felted pillows, and her wildly popular Cat Fish.
