Susan Hill - Chiricahua Gallery
Susan Hill moved from Santa Rosa, California to Taos in 1982. The appearance of the
southwest landscape combined with the large number of weavers in the area caught her
interest. She studied weaving under Rachel Brown of Weavings Southwest. To gain
knowledge of different weaving techniques she apprenticed to Sally Bachman of Clay
and Fiber, Robin Reider, Kate Nillsen and Juanita Girardin.
In 1992 she retired from teaching special education and started weaving professionally.
She now supplies seven galleries in New Mexico and New York state with scarves, stoles
and ruanas. He particular interests are color and texture; her preferred fibers are
cotton, rayon, chenille and speciality threads. She has been weaving for some 25 years
and has shown at the Chiricahua Gallery since 1994.
