Hornby Island, BC
Susan Cain is an artist who has created a unique line of beautifully designed cloth hand puppets. They are loved and collected by children and adults especially teachers, librarians, and therapists.
Each is individually handcrafted and their bright colours, tactile qualities, and comfortable fit create a uniquely expressive tool. The puppets represent a wide range of characters.
For many years, Susan has also been making textile-based mixed media sculpture. She incorporates wood and wire with fabric to make free-standing figures and animals that have a lively and expressive spirit.
