    susan diane connerAs a Poet of Stone, I am fully invested in the arts. I make granite and marble low-relief carvings. My most expressive pieces are my trees, which grow out of the experience of carving them. I am also a 3 dimensional stone carver, using soapstone, marble, limestone, etc.

    Scenery, architectural imagery, wildlife, portraits of people and animals. Sculptures rich with Judaic and New Testament symbolism. Commissions expressing all religions and mythologies in my medium, as well as corporate logos, from wall sized murals to signed numbered series of smaller pieces, and my newest obsession: Celtic Lore and Hermetica. The nature of the divine, mind, nature and the cosmos Intrigues me.

    I love exploring the land, and the flora and fauna around me, the wonderful skies, and the people at their activities that connect us all to each-other over the four seasons.

    I have exhibited in juried art shows in the U.S.A. and Canada.  Many ribbons won over the years!
    I have designed pieces for Churches and Synagogues, (Ottawa J.C.C., Cincinnati, Boston, and Washington D.C., and a McDonald Family House in Pittsburg), Nissan, Pajar, and many other business establishments creating large numbered series and mural pieces for their homes and workplaces. The city of Sainte Agathe des Monts commissioned their Town logo in Black Granite this summer.

    My specialty is making custom designed pieces. I like to take the time to see, and hear as much as I can from the other people involved. I can enjoy this part of the creative process as much as the actual execution of my sculptures.
