Susan has been the Costume Craftsperson at the Goodman Theatre for the last 23 years. When she's not working on the next production, she is busy in her basement workshop in Brookfield creating found object robots. Susan combines new and old items together to bring about these whimsical characters. To give each sculpture personality, Susan uses things like keys, eyeglasses, hearts, silverware, and door knobs. She searches for items like these at antique malls and second hand shops, even friends and family’s basements.
What started as a family project for Susan and her family has grown into a creative way to view the things she sees around her. Susan hopes these sculptures bring joy to those who see them, and they put a smile on your face.
