Artist Statement

Making leather masks in New Orleans is an honor. I make then as comfortable as possible because I want them to be worn. People in New Orleans have given me lots of support and feedback, so if it is an original design , a custom mask or one made to wear with eyeglasses I have something for everyone.

Biography

As a transplant to New Orleans Susan quickly came to love the city and it's traditions. Making leather masks was a natural progression of costuming for herself and friends. Positive feedback from friends gave her the courage to start Dante's Masquerade in December of 2009 .
