In 2013 two important events occurred to put Sue on this current body of work. One, she finished the shed in her backyard with recycled wood pieces from the years of construction on her 100 year old home. Two, she went to visit Walden Pond, historic home of the writer, transcendentalist, and philosopher Henry David Thoreau. With the goal to "Simplify, Simplify" she creates in 2014 with these fresh ideas. Her work embraces her rural, domestic surroundings as well as her deeply held beliefs about recycling, reusing and conserving building materials and techniques from the past.
