Featured Artist: Suzan Engler

During the eight weeks of 'simply irRESISTible' we'll focus on individual artists here on our blog. Every week, three artists will be featured. Today, we're pleased to introduce to you: Suzan Engler from Panorama Village, TX.

Registration Marks

About the Piece: Registration marks must overlap to ensure alignment. Yet when aligned, all individuality is lost. Align if you must - but leave a trail, leave evidence of your existence.

Struggle for Perfection Interrupted

About the piece:
"The circle, in theory, is perfect.
The circle, in reality, struggles to retain the fleeting, momentary perfection.
Alas, perfection is lost but only then a unique voice is born."

Artist Statement/Biography: To create is to be an active participant in life.

My textile creations are a collaboration of traditional quilting and contemporary fiber arts. The juxtaposition of the human hand and technology intrigue me as I create art quilts combining custom printed and painted fabrics, hand stitching and intricate machine quilting.

Currently I am exploring the depiction of change and transition with the repetition of the most simple of marks: the line and circle.


Suzan holds degrees in Computer Science and Business Administration, as well as a Master's degree in Fine Arts. Recently, Suzan left her role as a Senior Designer at PDR, an architecture firm in Houston, Texas to pursue her art full-time.

Suzan has taught art at the University of Houston, exhibited her work in galleries, and participated in the International Fiber Initiative. Her art work is included in private collections in the United States and Great Brittan. Suzan is available for commission work and may be reached at
