About the Artist

Suggs Headshot LSUnderstanding how to categorize my work is as complicated as trying to categorize myself as an artist—something that I think about constantly.  Although I use various mediums and techniques that can be associated with sculpture or painting/drawing, I think more often than not, I find myself using processes that are deeply rooted in craft.  The combination of skill, labor, execution, inspiration, vision, and intuition are qualities that define craft, and all of which are present in my work.  I am connected to the tradition of making with the hand, although what I make and the way that I use tools and treat surface is unconventional and contemporary.
