Exciting new installation of Susan's work in
Washington, DC, 2008
This site presents many of my designs for kinetic
sculptures. Most of these sculptures are externally activated. My work has originated in response to a new

finished pieces are virtually maintenance free.
The kinetic quality of these sculptures evokes a ballet
of form and function. The elements of wind,
water and light provide the kinetic energy.

explored. In the meantime, please enjoy your visit to my website.
