Susan Nash is a fibre artist who works out of her downtown studio, Studio 202, in Zanesville, Ohio. She creates primarily, appliqued, quilted, and embellished pieces using antique and new materials from commercial and hand-dyed fabrics. Her enjoyment is adding beads and found objects to her work. She has had artworks juried into local, national, and international art shows; most recently, Sacred Threads and the Spring International Quilt Festival.
Susan is originally from Athens, Ohio where she graduated from Ohio University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology. She is married to Mike Nash and has three children; Abby, Ben, and Molly.
I create my art because it is a passion……I simply need to do it. My work is rooted in nature and the world around me. Intuitively, working from the heart, I use colors, textures, and all the possibilities that fabric, fibers, beads, and found objects offer me. The challenge for me is to translate this world into my stitched and embellished pieces.
