Susan Longerot is a second generation native Californian, graduating from Cal State University at Long Beach. She earned a degree in Art, Education and Cultural Anthropology.

After graduation, Susan taught in the Long Beach Unified School District. For the past 25 years, she has been teaching adult classes in book binding as an artistic expression, and surface design on paper.

Susan is a fickle artist, experimenting with combining calligraphy, quilting, painting, photography, journaling and artist books. They all overlap in her artwork. Although she skips from one medium to another, the common denominator is always COLOR.

Susan currently lives in Newport Beach with her husband, Keith. They share a studio space in Costa Mesa.
