Creating with Fiber has been a continuous thread for most of Suzanne Tidwell's life. She has worked in many mediums, both two and three-dimensional. She currently finds herself working with wool and mohair, creating fantasy environments by means of knit, crochet, and felting techniques. Dense vegetation and rebirth through decay are continuing themes in her work.
Residing at over two dozen addresses scattered throughout Ohio, Missouri, Texas and Sweden, Suzanne is pleased to call herself settled on Seattle's Eastside. In 1993, she graduated from the University of North Texas with a BA in Visual Art Studies. She has taught art to children and adults in schools, through art museum programs and privately. She credits her artistic revitalization to completing her certificate in Fiber Arts from the University of Washington in 2010. Her most recent installation "Winter Trees" is currently on display along 228th Avenue in Sammamish until March 18, 2011.
