Mind Pliers

There is a Latin phrase that has been the motto of many groups through the years; “Dum Spiro, Spero” meaning “while I breathe, I hope”. I’ve paraphrased a bit and put it into an “if-then” model.

If I Have Breath (then) I Have Hope

Bio

Quirky SuZ is the result of many creative ventures throughout my life. My parents encouraged all of their children to be adventurous and share their talents. I don’t remember any phase of my life when I didn’t have some kind of creative outlet.

I moved to the Ozarks in grade school and down to the borderlands after college. Yes, love was involved! After a few years of odd jobs, I became a high school teacher. For thirty years, I taught United States History, geography, and all other Social Studies subjects at Berryville High School. Teaching, sponsoring Student Council, and coaching Quiz Bowl kept me busy at school. I enjoyed decorating my classroom each year and always tried to make the displays attractive, motivational, and educational.

Through the years, I kept doing creative activities and enjoyed learning new skills. Daily work outfits often included jewelry and clothes that I made. Retirement allows me to spend many happy hours in my studio creating wonderful things to share.

My studio is Iris Cottage. It is a wonderful place to spend time and I am so fortunate to have a dedicated creative space!
