• Paper Mache • 

Susan enjoys working bigger than life and to an almost extreme exaggeration. It's no surprise that one of her favorite days of the year is Halloween.

Papier Mache

For almost 25 years, Susan has been creating characters out of paper and her imagination. Sometimes the three dimensional artwork (see puppet heads) is for a specific project such as a convention. Other times, it's as a workshop project creating halloween masks (see ghoulish masks). Sometimes, it's just for the fun of it.

Sue gets her inspiration from many places. She collects books from such authors as Daniel Reed who does 'The Basic Screamer'. But oftentimes, it's from her imagination that the most outrageous creations are born. A walk through Snow Goose Studio is a walk among paper and painted monster heads and exaggerated faces, and paper mached sculpture in various stages of completion on the walls and counters.

If you have an event that calls for something different, this may it! Susan has worked on several large themed conventions and shows in which she created signage, wall decorations as well as paper mached parts. To inquire about the possibilities, email or call Susan (530) 265-6076.
