Bemis School of Art

Suzy Hunt Gardner


The daughter of an artist and in a family of artists, I’ve drawn, colored, cut, pasted, whittled, sculpted, soldered, molded, knotted, painted, and created from whatever was available for as long as I can remember. I started making jewelry when I was 10 years old. A lifelong lover of sparkly things, this is a dangerous pastime for me!

I named my company Dream Follower. Why? Our lives get so busy we hustle just to get through our daily chore list. I came to a time in my life when I realized that I still had dreams I wanted to follow and needed to prioritize them if they were ever to be. Hence, Dream Follower. Follow your Dreams, they know the way.

I am a lifelong artist. I studied Art at Mesa State University in Grand Junction, Colorado. I have continued my studies with different classes; some taught by other artists, some at Bemis School of Art in Colorado Springs, and at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico.  I’ve enjoyed classes in Sculpture, Metalsmithing, Drawing, Painting, Human Anatomy, ceramics, and raku, in addition to many others.
