About Susan Miron
Susan Miron has been a professional artist for more than 25 years. Her experience covers a wide variety of artistic media, ranging from oil and acrylic painting, to wood and metal sculpture. Over the years she has developed a special affinity for three-dimentional fiber art, focusing primarily on basketry.

All of her works are one-of-a-kind, and reflect her emphasis on the uniqueness of the idea which inspired it. Owing to the nature of her craft, much of her work shows the influence of Native American culture through the use of chosen materials and stylistic influence, but always, her works combine a variety of influences into a truly individual creation.

She is an active member of many art and basketry organizations. She has taught her craft extensively, at levels ranging from the most elementary to college level, and worked as Artist in Residence at Napa State Hospital (California) for many years, and curated numerous exhibits of work by her students.
